One bite, and all your dreams will come true

Up to this point I have only painted green and yellow/green apples. I'm a big fan of Granny Smith apples, so I tended to want to paint them. However, as I was packing lunch for my kids, I took a long, close look at the Gala apple I was putting in my son's bag.
Unlike the green Granny Smith apples, which are dominated by green and slight variations of yellow, the Gala had reds, oranges, pinks, yellows and flecks of green. I couldn't detect any kind of pattern to why some parts of the apple are yellow and other parts are deep orange or red. I picked one I thought was nicely shaped and warmly colored.
This is the result.

This painting has sold.
