Netherlands | 1969 | Painting

“There was a red Belle de Boskoop on the table. I was captivated by its complex shape, colour and texture. I was also very excited to work with oil paint, the medium of the old masters. The small size (20x20cm) is inspired by the wonderful world of small things. The gloss of the red apple fades slowly, and the drying time between the layers of paint form a challenge. The size seems to be a limitation to work in a monumental fashion as in my portraits, however I have painted more than 50 red apples by now. “
