Old Tree Sketch

I have a photo of an old apple tree that was in our back yard and used it as a reference for this sketch.  The top of the tree had broken off and most of the branches were gone. 

This morning I've been trying to come up with a still life arrangement to paint and have taken beau coup photos.  I found a scrap piece of material that was bright and colorful, then got a couple of bowls and a white platter that I thought would work with the material.  That didn't have enough interest so added red apples to bring in more red.
