What I am doing now is a painting course, and we have begun by researching colour (my favourite topic). I have never had any art training before, so I am pleased to be able to go over the basics, because those basics are such an important foundation of any skill.
These still life's I did a couple of years ago. They are of the same "proverbial" bowl of fruit, spun around in a different direction, but in different mediums. The first is water colour pencil, the second, lead pencil only.
