Cherry Pop!


Cherry Pop!
12" X 16"
Coloured Pencil on Pastelbord
Thanks Gayle for the name idea!
There is some distortion as usual from my wide angle lens, which is always really noticeable with the box ones.

I used my usual recipe for Pastelbord. I worked up 90% of the image using Derwent Coloursofts which cover the surface faster than other pencils and then, like icing on a cake, I finished the last 10% with Caran D'Ache Luminance pencils. Yum. That frosting is good. The Luminance pencils help me brighten the colors of the Coloursofts, blend a bit more, and basically burnish the surface.

Nicole,
What a lovely painting. I've been here and ogled it several times now. You've done a wonderful job with the perspective...and the use of color, wow! You should be pleased with the end results. Well done indeed.
