EDM Fruit challenge


This drawing was done whilst I was feeling cross with the world. I thought that absorbing myself in a drawing might help me unwind. But I think they still look like angry pears.

I don't think they look angry at all. They look bright and vibrant (not muddy either) they look juicy and solid - nice work.

Nah, they don't look angry. They are basking in a sunny glow, dreaming about Barcelona and someone named Helene.

Thank you all. Karen it took me moment to get the joke, but when I did, it made me laugh and cheered me up - what a wit!
Penny, I drew them late at night with an anglepoise lamp casting a strong directional light. I drew directly in Painter using a wacom - underneath the final version there are layers and layers of unhappy attempts with the various tools - oil pastels, chalks, coloured pencil, digital watercolour. I think the final layer of black and white pencil is what kind of pulled it together.
