Red Apples WIP & Art Collector Magazine

Work in Progress!

I am really enjoying rendering the leaves of the apples. I have to admit that I don't enjoy doing florals much, but I really enjoy doing leaves. Go figure, we'll see if I can figure that little tidbit into more still-lifes.

If anyone gets the American Art Collector Magazine, my work is in an ad this month for the Monadnock Fine Art Gallery on page 94. I'm also pictured in a photograph on page 82 under the paragraph titled "Celebrating Summer" from the show I had there with Mary Iselin this summer. Although that two person show is over, the Monadnock Art Gallery always has 10-15 pieces of mine at any given time.

The American Art Collector magazine isn't just for collectors too, I really enjoy looking at the artwork form galleries in it, and the articles on artists that they feature. So sit on the floor at your local Borders and take a peak at it or buy a copy. :)

Thanks Julie and Krystyn!

Veda - Thanks. I'm sorry, I forget there will be new readers, and I'm just using my usual suspects as far as materials go. It is all colored pencil, BUT, I did the background using Caran D'Ache Spectracolors (watercolor pencil) and Neocolor II (watercolor crayon). The rest has an initial layer of Derwent Coloursofts and then the rest of the layers are in Caran D'Ache Luminance pencils, both are regular dry colored pencils.

& of course it is all done on Ampersand Pastelbord - which is what I do my still-lifes on.
