This red apple and yellow, ceramic cream pitcher just seem made for each other in a Mutt and Jeff sort of way. Although one is quite tall, relative to the other, they are both rather rotund. I liked that the apple had exactly the same shade of yellow on it as the little pitcher, and I loved the cast shadow of the stem. I really experimented with the background, making it very loose and somewhat rough relative to the smoothness of the apple and pitcher. It was really fun to just smoosh paint around for a change. Me, being loose. Enjoy.
