Graphite on paper, 6.5" x 10"
Apples are great to draw.
Apples are generally round, which gives the artist the challenge of rendering lights and darks on a spherical surface, except when they are cut open, which provides another challenge of rendering planes in perspective.
Apples seen in bright light catch highlights and produce cast shadows of interesting shapes and tonal ranges, and apples placed on a shiny surface give the artist an additional set of reflections to puzzle over.
But when the drawing is done, the benefit of drawing apples is that you get to eat them!
