Hi, I really enjoyed your DVD on painting apples. I decide to add one red apple to my composition, and then crop off at both sides.-
Jin, Your apples are exquisite! Within your form shadows (red apple in specific) work towards shared values, meaning make the value of the cast shadows and form shadows more similar so that contour within the shadow becomes less distinct. Rule of thumb: edges facing the light source are a bit more defined, compared to edges within shadows.
