August Artwork #2


Another sketch for August Artwork. The peaches were made with colored pencils. I found it challenging to get the correct shape - not too round, not to precise - but still recognizable and realistic. The color was the most fun part. I'm learning to use unpredictable colors (at least to me) to obtain more realistic results. The peach skin was made with yellows, oranges, pinks, purples, blues and gray. The leaves were greens, yellows and blues. I've found a good rule of thumb is to use a minimum of 3 different colored pencils to create a "single" color. Now, to keep working on the highlights and then tackle the shadows.
