We had just gotten back from a local orchard – try to pick apples with the family every Fall. Sun was low in the sky. About an hour before sunset, on a clear day, the sun creates a wonderful orange cast. Staged some of the apples in various settings and snapped some shots. Finished shooting, and laid the apples on the kitchen table – just threw them there randomly. Sat down to review the shots on my camera, and, out of the corner of my eye, saw this interesting pattern of apples and a strong light reflecting of the kitchen table coming through the patio window. Created these wonderful blue, green, and purple highlights on the table and strong highlights on the top edges of the apples. Liked the challenge of creating subtle value changes in the shadows. Just goes to show – sometimes the best compositions are accidental and good lighting is available when you least expect it. I find that some of my best painting ideas come when I’m not trying.
