Apple Study

APPLE8″ x 8″
Nitram Charcoal & white chalk on Stonehenge Colors paper
$99 (including frame seen below)

A value study done after a sketchbook study (speed sketch video) but before a color study and a final soft pastel piece… yes, I drew/painted this four times total.

With such a “simple” subject, I knew I would really need to nail the values. I put simple in quotes because there is not a lot of detail or colors to distract from any value mistakes. So I took my time and really got to know this subject before painting it a final time in soft pastels. It paid off in the end!

This piece and the final pastel piece were juried in to CALs Indulge art show. You can read more about the final piece and my reasons for choosing this subject here.  The final pastel piece has sold but this charcoal study is still available!


(Ready to hang!)
