Apple and Tulip in colored pencils

I made this apple following a tutorial from another artist (Gemma Chambers) who specializes on colored pencils, graphite, and pastel pencils before I found TVI. I was very pleased with how it turned out. It was made on half sheet of smooth bristol paper with Prismacolor premier.
Also did the tulip with her tutorial on 9x12 bristol vellum with polychromos colored pencils. Finished the tulip about two weeks ago (whatever the date says) after I had the sketch done for a long while.



Both look really nice. I especially like your rendering of the tulip. The details are exceptionally done. It is amazing the details that are possible with mediums in pencil form.

I look forward to seeing other pieces of your artwork.

Sonia - these are both WONDERFUL. I think you’re more than ready to give that portrait a try.

Hi Sonia,

Wonna grab the apple and take a bite. It looks great and very yummie.

The tulip very detailed too. Like your style and the color choice. Very well done.



Thank you, I really appreciate it. I am trying the peony next. So far the first try was a fail lol. Sigh hopefully the second time is way better!!
