My latest effort with neocolors and pastelbord is this bowl of cherries that I've been wanting to draw for awhile. I used a white pastelbord, then blocked in the colors with the neocolor II. Then I began to build up the values and finally the highlights. When viewed up close you can see the texture that is achieved with the help of the pastelbord. I am really loving the sanded surfaces.


  1. Love the rich color of the tabletop and the cherries. It's very "Beth"!

  2. Gorgeous! I adore your fish too. Very awesome. Very glad you stumbled upon the Arkansas Etsy Team.

    Twistedpurl, Thanks for stopping by and I'm looking forward to getting to know the group.

  4. Very nice, Beth. This would make a nice student kit . . . ;-D

  5. BTW, congratulations on your Etsy shop. I'm still working on mine. You've inspired me to work harder at it.

    Christmas shopping will be fun at your Etsy store.

  6. Thanks Fannie. I'm looking forward to seeing your Etsy store. Please send me a link when you get it ready! Guess I should get some things ready for Christmas!
