Electric Blue!


Click Images to Enlarge

A very blue still-life. But no blue objects. This one is going to be 12" x 24" and it may take me a while. Not because it will be difficult to do (the shapes are very simple) but because I may have to take a break to mail order more blue pencils! This will have an all blue background and then the objects are mostly white except for 3 red, yellow and green pears. I hope the end result will be modern and dramatic, but we'll see!

I'm using coloursofts and Caran D'Ache pencils and then putting Faber Castell Polychromos on top to smooth things and to tint. Yum!

None of this is finished - I'll come back to them later and adjust values and edges. Especially that vase, that is looking pretty flat still!

So stay tuned!

The pear looks so good. Be careful someone doesn't eat it before you get back to it.. :)
