Life Sketching

Apples and Tomatoes . . . part 4 . . . the end

Intro:This is one of those tests that ‘pen and paper’ people like to do every now and then -it’s the first time I’ve done it and, tragically,  found it interesting – I must get out more.

Moleskine users put there will know that the paper varies a lot.- whereas the watercolour paper is ‘watercolor’ friendly- the sketch book is paper is a lot less so. Whilst preparing for a brief visit to the UK was wondering what to take….

Version IV- This was done very quickly using Staedtler Triplus colour pens and a Pentel Japanese style brush pen- again the colours are not meant to be ‘realistic’ but I wanted to do something very quickly – –  2 or 3 mins – – (unfortunately the obsessive in me says ‘and it looks like it, too . . . . .’ ) In fact, it was done on a scrap of paper,  so it doesn’t really help the test.- and the tomatoes have been eaten – – Anyway, all comments, welcome!

The un-sketched upon top side of the apple seemed a vast wilderness to me initially. As if in need of color, life. But the more I study it, the more I understand why it is that way. It allows the green to live. Not just live, but prosper.
I’m not an artist, though. I don’t even play one on TV.

Any thoughts?
