Apple - Rival

Colour pencil on paper. Part of a set of 16 drawings of apples from Wisley RHS orchard. Rival is a real 'childhood' apple: streakily blushed all over with reds and oranges, shot with a pale-yellow undertone, like everyone's ideal apple. It is generous is size and bears abundantly on spurs. Large leaves fail to hide this exuberant fruit, that just asks to be picked and eaten.
