I call it a sketch because it was a quick painting with little effort.
|Watercolor of three green apples.|
I began with a careful pencil sketch, and then did several washes layering color down. First I laid down the background blues and reds. Next I did the lightest values of yellow in the green apples, which I dropped green in and spread it around a little. I went back and gave the background a deeper value of blue, that made the green look tool pale so I had to deepen the greens. The shadows were a combination of grey and violet.
I think I needed a little muddy color here and there in the shadows to take down some of the brightness.
