Photoshop Exercises - Still Life Apples

Still life colouring exercise with apples: recognizing colours in negative space as well as apples themselves, and discovering more detailed colours rather than just cherry red [black, grey, beige, pink, violet, yellow, etc.] Slightly more difficult than black-and-white exercise because of this, but became really interested in trying to mimic colour distribution, discovering new shapes inside objects [e.g. pink ring around far-left apple].
Continuing using eye-drop tool to mimic colours exactly from original photograph, but still helping me realize chiaroscuro and colour contrast. Main idea again being loosest shades first, and then gradually building up. Really looking forward to using these techniques on bigger projects!
