The porch warmed up today, so I grabbed some pastels and an apple to see what could be done after the kids finally got to sleep.
Here's the set up . . . and my underpainting done in Conté hard pastels, mostly earth tones.
First layer of soft pastel color . . .
After a another layer of soft color and a couple of details with the Conté crayons.
5x7, pastel on Ampersand Pastel Board. Sold.
