Blushing Apples

"Golden With a Blush"

Here's a small colored pencil that I just finished up today. Did you know that golden delicious apples are really more yellow-green when the grocer first puts them in the produce aisle? As they ripen, they turn more and more yellow. That makes the color seem like a moving target when you let a couple of days go by between the start and end of the drawing.

WOW, I love the apples, but I think the cloth is AMAZING! X.X so much detail!

Thanks Robyn! I love the linens - been drawing them for about 20 years now. I don't think that I'll ever get tired of putting them in the still lifes.
