105. Three-Color Study: Apples

Going through a period of disliking much of what I have been doing, it occurred to me that in addition to simplifying color detail, maybe it would also be a good idea to simplify my palette of colors.

Here, apples in a primary triad of sorts:  Quin Gold, Cobalt Teal, and Permanent Alizarin Crimson.

I was quite surprised at how deep I could get the shadows using the alizarin and teal, as well as how delicate the pale shades could be.  A bit overworked, too, but the lessons are sinking in if I am lucky!
