Kiwi Fruit WIP 3


Here we are then, more work done and I'm afraid this one's gone belly up! It pains me to upload it but it's important to record the failures as well as the successes. Although there are bits that aren't that bad, basically the colours have been muddied - probably by the application of too many different greens. I don't think it can be rescued. I could blame the paper but that's a cop-out, isn't it? Never mind, I think this was always going to be a tricky one to pull off in coloured pencil.
And.....to add insult to injury, one of my cats has just sauntered onto my table and plonked himself on the drawing! Mmmm.....

Wonderful composition and colours! I wouldn't have know it had gone belly if you hadn't said!

Why do cats do that? They just seem to know exactly how to get maximum attention don't they?!

Thanks Felicity, you are too kind! Think I had just been staring at it for too long and got weary....it doesn't look so bad now!

I think you're being way too hard on yourself. I like this! I'm amazed at how you kept those white bits white. Put it away for a while ~ I'll bet you'll like it better after a break.
