EDM 92 Draw an Apple
With the theme of harvest for Kate's Alumni group, I've drawn several apples, and I really enjoy the challenge of getting the reds just right and the roundness as full as I think the apples should be. So I found a good photo reference (it's really difficult finding time these days to sketch in daylight!! SIGH!) -- and went to work.
It took two evenings to let the watercolor dry between all the glazes I've added .. but I'm pleased with MOST of the apples. In the first sketch, I'm including all the apples as I've sketched them -- but that apple on the far left just didn't come out right and doesn't even look like an apple .. so, as suggested by others in this circumstance, I simply cropped that one from my last scan ... so only the better apples show...
Oh yes -- I really do love apples to eat, too. Our larder is in need of a grocery store visit -- apples on the menu to be sure!
