I think this is a Granny Smith apple. It's one of those horribly sour kinds, anyway. My goal with this piece was to convey how sour the apple is - that just by looking at this painting, you make an involuntary "lemon face."
What's really exciting to me about this painting is the difference between this apple and the apples I painted on day 2 and 3. I already see growth in this short time. This year-long project is a lot of work, but very rewarding already.
