This week I decided to take a closer look at the "inside" of the fruit on the kitchen table. Anticipation: that is the mood I hope to capture. Although I haven't made the sketch yet, I know that this will be a welcome distraction from the weekend to do list. My musical inspiration will be Pandora's David Crowder Radio. I hope to hear authentic, rich music and my sketch will hopefully capture the essence of the music and the anticipation of the snack to follow.
Media: Chalk Pastel/Colored Pencil
Music: Pandora Radio
Sketchbook Exercise: Take a piece of fruit or a vegetable, cut it, arrange it, then draw it. I used several heavy layers of hairspray over my initial layers of pastel. I liked the textured surface it created for my colored pencil layer that was applied on top. Try this technique to experiment with mixing the media.
