Apple while away

I recently took my Van Gogh watercolor Pocket Box with me to a conference, assuming I would findsomething to paint.  They was a nice view from the room, but each time I tried to paint the view I was chased inside by violent rain storms.  I ended up with some half painted landscapes.

The one sketch I was able to finish I did inside, of an apple.  The apple was a colorful mix of red, yellow and green.  The desk light cast deep shadows similar to the orange I painted on another trip.  The reflected light created highlights around the top of the apple.
