This little pear was just lopsided enough to balance for my sketch (water soluble crayon, 5 1/2" x 7 1/2"). I love sketching fruits and veggies; they are classic and simple every time, yet interesting and different each time as well. Surprisingly I used very little actual green color here, simply lots of blending of blues, yellows, oranges and browns. Another fun experiment for me to use my water-soluble "grown-up" crayons too - with wet paper to start, and without the watercolor paint this time. They allow me the comfort zone of colored pencils, but with more saturation as well the option to blend as liquid, which is neat! I am a big fan, Caran D'ache Neocolor II!
