Golden Delicious on My Desk - colored pencil drawing









drawing copyright Judith Nijholt-Strong
"Little Golden Delicious"
5.5"h x 3.5"wide  (one side of  page spread)
colored pencils with pen & ink
Japanese Folded Moleskine sketchbook

I've decided to do some more baking this weekend - apple pies, apples bars, maybe even apple muffins ... who knows!

But before I start baking, I wanted to draw this lovely Golden Delicious apple as it sat on my desk. So I got out my folded Moleskine, the sketchbook I've titled "Small Things on My Desk", and I drew the apple. Of course, after I was done, I ate the apple (ahh, the perks of having apple models)! Yes, it was "delicious". :o)

For this drawing I used:
Faber-Castell Polychromos & Lyra Rembrandt Polycolour colored pencils
Sakura Pigma Micron pen (black ink)
Moleskine Japanese Folded sketchbook
tot ziens,
Judy
