Spiral Repeated

Orange Spiral II
colored pencil
Copyright 2007 Sheila Cantrell

Here's a colored pencil that I finished a few days ago. I did this half peeled orange in oil about a month ago. I had taken reference photos of it with a linen cloth as well as just sitting on top of a chest of drawers. The oil painting did not have the cloth in it. I decided to do it bigger and with the cloth for the colored pencil drawing. I used lots of colors in shading the cloth - blues and purples, yellows, and reds. I really liked how this one turned out.
