Day One - again.

Colored pencil on BFK, 6.5” x 7.5”, 2011Candied Apples with color…

After adding color this morning, I’m reminded of a statement issued by a gentleman who painted our house years ago: “It ain’t the Mona Lisa ya know.”

The black pencil seemed to contaminate the layered colors, especially in the sticks of the apples. I was getting impatient and ready to work bigger before the sketch was finished.

Candied Apples grisaille…

Black Polychromos pencil on BFK paper. I enjoy the way the support and medium interact. We’ll see how it goes adding color.

Removing the image one step from precious by posting the drawing allows me to immediately see where revisions are needed. Interesting.

I completed the grisaille “watching” a movie with my husband, who generously encourages my creative efforts.
