"Three Apples"

Painted plein air, at Zsalays Farm, this landscape avoids the "too much green" problem.
It was a hot hazy day. The distant trees are blue green. Atmospheric perspective causes distant objects to be out of focus, low contrast, and blend in with the atmosphere: blue sky. The apples and wooden window niche were added in the studio.
