We have a bumper crop of apples in the garden at the moment and I thought that rather than paint them conventionally I would have fun exprimenting with colour theory.  I have started by painting the board a rather vivid Phthalo Blue and made a semi-abstract image on top of the apples and foliage which, being red and green, are ‘complementary’ colours – in other words colours opposite to each other on the colour wheel.  Bit of a zingy one – but I like it!
