"Tomato" Colored Pencil
9" by 12" 100 lb. paper
This is my colored pencil study of the tomato still life. I used the orderless mineral spirits and the colorless blender with this study. Who knew that colored pencils were so much fun, way past coloring maps in social studies.

This is my pen and ink study of the tomato still life. BLT anyone? I found cutting the tomato open and drawing the a interesting challenge. The different textures were fun to try and depict with the various media I used.

Pen and Ink Bing Cherries

"Bing Cherries" Pen and Ink
9" by 12" 100 lb paper
My pen and ink study of a Bing cherry still life. I found depicting the texture of Bing cherries a challenge. I decided the a pointillism approach was better then crosshatching. I may have to go back and redo some of these pen and ink still life's and try a line approach with cross hatching instead of the dotting approach of pointillism.
