Apples at Dad’s on Arches A1 paper

I made this drawing today using oilbars and pencil and is another response to dad’s garden. I shared the photos of the fallen apples in my previous post. This is a gestural drawing that I enjoyed getting involved with and feel it is not yet complete. It could go through yet more stages. I relished pressing hard with the pencil through the layers of oilbar marks which feel so lush when you lay them down. The heavy arches paper can take any amount of pressure that’s why I love it so much. Click to enlarge and see marks more clearly as usual.
