When coloring the apples and the barrel, imagine where your light source is. When I colored the apples, I started with the Goldrush color and inked a bit where the sun would be. Then I added Cranberry to the whole apple and ended with Barn Red ink in just the shadowy parts of the apples. The same applies for the barrel. I inked the whole thing lightly with Chocolate, then added a bit more where any shadows would be.
Engineer is coming home tonight from his trip and I think I may have to do some actual housework before that happens!
Better get busy then...
