Where is Spring?

One more week until Spring Break begins! I'm waiting patiently until Spring Break to re-engergize! I've been too tired mentally to even think about starting a new drawing. When I get home from work, I have to recharge my batteries. Spring Break is always a welcome break in routine from work and 100s of teenagers that have various degrees of illness ranging from spring fever to full blown Senior-itis! So needless to say, my days can be exhausting!

I need to work on an ACEO for the ScribbleTalk trade for March. I've been taking some pictures of fruit for ideas. I hope to start some sketches this weekend. I will try to post a sketch or two this weekend.

For now, I will post this experiment I did a couple of years ago. I worked from life, setting up a couple of apples, and experimented with different techniques of applying color in nine sections.

The first section and the last section are watercolor pencil, cut into pieces to look like mosaic. The second section is pointilism with markers. The rest are all colored pencil using crosshatching, circulism, blending, and contour lines.
