Repetition with Variation

"Asian Pears and Lace"

Here's my latest colored pencil drawing. In my original setup for this drawing, the lace was on a white surface - another cloth, I believe. Once I started on the reds and yellows of the pears though, I realized that I wanted more of those colors in the drawing. A cedar chest in my bedroom provided the inspiration to finish out the drawing. I really like how the wood repeats the pear colors (though not exactly) and makes the lace stand out.
