January VSD: A Peeling
Above is my entry for the January Virtual Sketch Date. Thanks to Jeanette Jobson for the reference and for doing the administration work this month.
I did my first attempt in acrylic. I was not thrilled with it. But then I saw Jeanette's inspired entry and I just had to have another go.
This was done on some orange handmade paper, you can see little flecks and irregularities. The paper surface is not smooth, normally not my choice for colored pencils, but actually I think it really helped with all the tremendous texture on that fruit.
