An Apple A Day WIP

An Apple A Day WIP
  11 x 14
  watercolor on aquaboard
  For Still Life 2.  Apple on my Mom's apple tree.  I was really having a hard time choosing between the apples and a fireplace mantel but in the end I really like the color in the apples.   I think I can get some really cool looking blends with this piece.   I am trying out another painting surface.  This one is Ampersand Aquaboard.  It is quite interesting with the watercolor.  It works a lot like the gessoed surface but a bit more forgiving.  I think (if I dont chicken out) I will be able to get some really vibrant colors.
Here is the sketch before I began painting-
