You're brilliant!
So is your work! Brilliant that is!
Great composition. The complimentary colors are terrific. Another beautiful painting.
Are you making the shining, that is, reflecting part of an object larger than usual? The reflection on the apple is not made with a dot or a streak (or "stroke"!) of the brush, but are you, shall we say, smudging it more, perhaps with a finger so that the apple acquires a larger shinyness? I know, the question is not well posed, but I'm in a hurry.
Beautiful believability! Bravo!!
Now I know how Eve felt!
THAT is a scrunchy apple !
