Two more ACEOs!


Little Kitten Blue was part of last night's Thursday Night Art Jam. I love doing monochrome blue, every now and then the Ultramarine just grabs me.

Then today I finally went back to colored pencils and did ACEO Windfall, in Lyra Rembrandt oil based pencils. They're very transparent and layer so well! I think I used most of the bottom layer greens and browns and earth reds with only a violet, white and one bright crimson pencil for shadows and the brightest part of the red side of the apple. I really like how it came out, there's a lot of rich luminosity to the layering.

LOL yep! Well, it's that time of year -- and this one did come out of our yard. I got inspired by WetCanvas when I found a thread on life drawing in Colored Pencil in the Colored Pencils forum. I looked at what was posted and posted my life sketch of the shell but wanted to do something that was on theme too. The theme was Fall Flowers or Yard Cleanup, and the apples did roll all over the place in our yard (especially the ones the birds ate some) so I figured a bird-pecked apple was On Topic.
