Backlit Berries 6 X 18 Colored Pencil on Ampersand Pastelboard
Second in my Backlit series to be completed, although this one took me a while since I've had 2 classes running for the last 6 weeks. Amidst many family obligations this was a fun one to work on. I again like the size of this piece as it looks great on a small easel on my kitchen counter while I wait for the frame to be delivered. A more stretched out version of this one at 6 X 18 versus the 6 X 12 of the citrus piece a few months ago was also intriguing. The glow of the light through these strawberries and the juice droplets on the surface plane convey everything I love about strawberries.
I hope you like them! Have a colorful day!
