Day #144 – Banana & Apple Still Life in Colour

Continuing with my experiments with colour pencils over the last few days I took the advice of several people and found some time to a drawing from life. I picked a classic combo of an apple and a banana and even did a few gesture drawings of each to warm up and get a feel for the objects from various angles. I’m quite happy with how the final piece came out. Finishing a piece in full-colour is especially satisfying. I don’t know if that’s just because it’s something new at the moment or if it’s just nicer to see things closer to how they appear in reality. Time will tell, my friends!
