My Journeys in Colored Pencil ... And Other Mediums
Friday, October 15, 2010
I was asked to do a 6x12" commission piece of plums for a kitchen wall so this is the composition we came up with. Its colored pencil on the Colourfix primed Gessoboard that I like working on. The customer wanted a gray background and I like the way the background came out. I might not have thought of it myself. Plums are challenging, trying to achieve the light blue tones on the dark colors of the skin without making them look fake.
