I have a some color pencil cherries done with a Valentines Day theme. 5x7 on Canson Mi Teintes toned paper done with Caran D’Ache Luminance pencils.
I love these pencils.
This was a really fun departure from just following Matt’s lead. Have to really think about what you are doing and not just try to replicate the metods being taught at the time.
I tried to follow the reference photo in which the background was severely blurred, and appeared to be a type of lace table covering with heart shaped center portion. Table cloth was partially folded back. I don’t know why, couldn’t figure it out but liked the composition and really had to just try to draw values I saw.
There was a point where all of a sudden when there was ebough value on the dish and cherries, the image really popped. It was also about the time the the tooth of the paper was lost.
Critiques and comments welcome.
