Pastel on UArt 600 Sanded Paper
Here's a few lemons enjoying their color complement of the blue water pitcher. I'm following the recommendations of Sally Strand and painting "from life" vs photos more often. I had a hard time just rendering the drawing. I finally wiped it all down and then toned the paper and it went much better. I had a good time w/the reflections. I was surprised that the ceramic bowl had as much reflection as it did. The photo surely didn't show it as clearly! This was also my first try at glass.
I remembered to set the timer, so here's a few progress shots. Thank you as always for reading and viewing my diatribe. I appreciate the comments and shares. Oh- and big thanks to my friend Chris B for her suggestions on "Summer Plums" I've made some adjustments and it really helped the bowl "sit down"
