Following the introductory course I took this fall in the art of coloured pencils, I did the next level and learned how to work with multiple coloured pencils. It is a very slow process to complete each assignment and I am still working on most of them, quite frankly, even though the course itself is now done.
However, this piece featuring red onions is finished so I am posting it today. It required the use of 17 coloured pencils in various combinations and layers on black paper.
The beginning stage --
The middle stage --
I am very proud of those onion tops. They almost have a photo-realistic quality, plus I managed to get a really good picture of them!
The final version --
The onion bulbs are okay but I want to burn that twine, LOL! My pencils were too dull and should have been sharpened so the twine would not be so thick.
Anyway, I will post the other course work individually as I slowly complete each piece.
