Apple in watercolour and coloured pencil


Braeburn Apple, study in watercolour and coloured pencil. Life size. Vivien Blackburn

Jeanette on Illustrated Life
has issued another challenge - this time to paint an apple.

Here is my apple :>)

A quick sketch in watercolour - no initial drawing, just laying down colours - finished off with a very little coloured pencil.

Now I'm going to eat it :>)

Why not join in with her challenge?

This is wonderful Vivien, thanks for joining in. You've gotten those apple colours perfectly. Coloured pencils do work so well with watercolour, don't they?

I always eat my subjects too :)

Beautiful combinaton of watercolour and pencil, Vivien - this is my favourite even though your all pencil version is so well done.

I'm going to have to buy some apples.
