Pear Trio



Here is my drawing for October's virtual sketch. I'm working on doing more graphite work. This is in my sketchbook and was shaded with a pure graphite pencil and brush.

This is lovely - are you going to have a go with inktense too?

Carolyn said...

I like how you included the plate with it. And I would love to see a version with the Inktense pencils too!

I especially like your highlights. Well done!!

Beautiful rendering.
I haven't done graphite in a while, and you make me remember why I love it so.

That's just lovely. I really like that.

So ambitious, so many versions! Nice works.

Mercy, you're ambitious! Very nice pencil work on the pears and the plate.

Your graphite pears are lovely. The greens (I'm always intrigued by artists' greens...) are really vibrant in your wc. Yarka, eh? Do you like them? Heard mixed results but they sure have great colors and look fun.

I love your graphite renderings especially well. And I must note how well the violet background works with the green pears. nice work!

Nice variation in the shading. Almost looks like metal. Great shine.

Nice work with the graphite.
I love the moodiness of the watercolour.
I believe you are right about pears, you just want to draw them. The shape? the colour? hmm-m.
