It's been a busy week, and I didn't get to paint much. First, San Antonio got heavy rains from tropical storm Hermine, and our roof sprang a leak. First time I've ever had to get a pot to put under a leaking roof. So I dealt with the roofing estimator. Then the AC started leaking from the overflow spout and I had to get a repairman out.
Plus my daughter and son-in-law are thinking of selling their house. Their neighbor told a friend of his at work, who wanted to come see the house even though it's not on the market yet. So I spent two days cleaning and staging the house. That involved throwing a lot of stuff away!
This apple is all I've had time for this week, but I'm hoping to try again tomorrow. I found it difficult to mix different shades of red for the apple. And the reflected light looked green to me, but I couldn't seem to get it. But I learn something every time I get to paint! I like the highlight.
