The last apple




This is a final reminder to all the procrastinators out there that the Apple Challenge ends tomorrow, October 15th.  Has it really been a month?  Too long?  Too short?

I started it for my own selfish purposes - to explore apples in different media and forms and I think I've succeeded in that.  The big learning curve comes from seeing what others produce and gleaning ideas from that.




I started a little sketch today then pushed it further tonight. Its done with carbon pencil and white charcoal on brown paper, my current favourite sketchbook.

Just gorgeous. Nice choice of paper and medium.

This is a favourite, Jeanette. Beautiful one to finish. You have conveyed the green apple of the apple without the colour.

Oh I think there will be more from time to time Mekeel.

I love this sketchbook Jo. I'll have to go buy up the local stock in case they disappear! :)

I was rushing on this Robyn and you're right, its worth spending some more time to finish. I love carbon pencil and this paper. It gives a unique effect.
