This year we have lots of apples in our Southern mountains. Not so last year. A freeze the previous spring wiped out the entire apple crop in our region. However this year the apples trees are heavy with abundant fruit, and apples adorn the roadside stands and markets. I couldn't resist doing at least one drawing celebrating the return of our apples.

It's hard to imagine doing this so small especially with the depth you've created here. Very nice!!

One of the things I love about fall is having fresh apples. You colored pencil work here is just luscious.

The apples are gorgeous. I love the composition; how dense it is, and the contrast between the apples and the dark areas. Nice!
