Apples And Basket

 We have started a Drawing Corner  in our Painting Friends Form, because of this I have started doing simple drawings.  I took two apples and a small basket I had and set up this still life.  I used different graphite pencils from HB to 6B on Canson  100lb Bristol paper.  Since I haven't drawn in a while I enjoyed doing this. Nice to just sit down with a pencil and paper and draw.
Thankyou everyone for taking time to view and comment. I appreciate all of you.

Mums The Word

Happy Sunday  

  We will be seeing Spring soon, now that March is here. And what better way to show it than with a painting of beautiful flowers in the sun.  A couple of weeks ago I bought a bunch of beautiful white mums.  I put these in a vase then outside for some nice photos of them in the sun.. I took some of them out of vase and put them beside it. I then put a sheet of white paper under vase and flowers for this composition.  I really liked the shadow formed by the back lite from the sun.  Shadows are done with Winsor Blue( Red Shade) and Perm Rose.
  It's pouring rain here today so this does lighten it up. I hope it lightens up your day as well.
  I appreciate all who come in and take a look. Please comment also.  So thankyou all
