Fruit - how do I love thee?



This is from a photo provided by the Monthly Sketch Project. Fruit again - how could I resist drawing that especially with my new dip pen nibs. Then I spilled water on it and the paper wrinkled quite badly. But--- good to know the ink is waterproof. I added color with watercolor pencils. I like the bright cheerful colors that the wc pencils create.

Totally agree with the versatility of the wc colored pencils ^^ It could be as sharp and defined as normal colored pencils would, and by adding water it could create the softness of the water colors. You did a wonderful job, and I too love fruit baskets :)
Thanks for your comment Lynn!

Really nice piece...I love the sharp ink with the great color! I know nothing about pencils, and this is more vibrant than I would have expected.
