(And it IS foggy, because I saw it that way in the original. I need to go to the oculist because I feel my eyes tired... and looking at the originals in my tiny netbook is making it worse, I saw all the bowl black, only latter I saw the grey and purple on the borders)

Sam I took your advice about my horses and tried to fix it as best as I knew how.  It did help so thank you.  They were delivered this AM and go on the block soon.

Here is my apple drwing I used pastels.  I was going to use watercolour as the back ground  but changed my mind.  It feels good getting back with art!!  Paper is 9"x12".

Lore, nice to meet you. I am glad you were able to draw another painting. Thank goodness children take naps! You bowl looks great and your apples too. You could overlay some colours over the black shadow to add punch and interest if you wanted to.

Jen C & C's always welcome

Joyce, great job on the bowl of fruit. The bowl looks great and maybe a bit more contrast to punch up the apples.

Nice to meet you too Jen!

Tomorrow I'll be busy drawing something on the cover of my drawing book (it's all red and I'm tired of it) but I'll try to have some time to do as you suggest. Maybe with pastels... the paper is really full of color. Maybe I'll "scratch" it with an eraser and  put some brown and gold pastels over it. I don't like that shadow either Ick!

Lore, I also think that there is some cloudiness in the bowl, under the apples.  The dark of the bowl should come up to the apples and the shadow on the apples could have a tint of dark, dark red.  Your apples are done very well with a nice variety of colors.

In order to have a permanent signature line, go to the top right of the page and click on EDIT PROFILE.  Click on SITE OPTIONS which is one of the tabs at the top of that page.  Scroll down to SIGNATURE and type in your name and C&C.

Joyce, what a cheerful bowl of apples.  The green bowl looks great and compliments the apples.  You have nice colors on the apples.  The light must be coming from the left since the bowl of fruit is casting such a big shadow on the wall.  Therefore, you need to put dark shadows on the bottom right side of each apple.  The apples in front in the bowl should be casting a shadow on the one behind it.  You have come a long ways, baby, and it's a pleasure to see your growth.

Hello everyone,,, I bet you thought I dropped off the planet..  I have been extremely busy with doing memorials for three of my best friends and producing the Michael Grimm Show every week plus my regular jazz events.  and producing a Live Recording cd. which as gone to print.  I do get  the emails from this challenge and see that everyone has been busy.   I needed to have some sane time to myself today so I sat down and worked on this color pencil piece of the beautiful horses in this months challenge.  I enjoyed every minute spent doing it.   I have seriously missed everyone....
