Here are several good acrylic painting videos by Bob Davies. There are more of his videos on BobDavies88's Channel on YouTube. He also has tips and tutorials on a variety of media on his website how-to-draw-and-paint. A related website idrawandpaint.com has a community for sharing your artwork, getting critiques, and meeting other amateur artists.
I finished my apple painting just in time to enter it in the Foot in the Door 4 show at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. This exhibit has been held once every ten years since 1980 and is open to all Minnesota artists. All works must fit within a 12-inch square box.
I titled my painting "Apple Family (Homage to Cezanne)." It reminded me of a family portrait, and it was inspired by an early Cezanne painting. I used three varieties of apples: Braeburn, Red Delicious, and Granny Smith. I made my arrangement on a cutting board and propped a big pad of tinted charcoal paper behind it. I made several digital photos and picked my favorite to use for the painting. I printed out the photo in 8" X 10" size and used graphite paper to transfer the composition to an 8" X 10" canvas.
Below is Cezanne's painting "Glass and Apples" (1879-1882).
I have been working on my apple still life and decided to look up apple still lifes. I found this website by a Dutch painter, Jos van Riswick. I love the simplicity of these still lifes. They show that a lot can be done with a few bowls and a few fruits or vegetables.
