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.

Good enough to eat!

These are gorgeous! I haven't tried the Colorfix primed surface yet - you've reminded me I need to break out of my Stonehenge rut.
