Draw a Fruit



I work at a local market part-time as a cashier. It isn't bad work, but my feet sure get tired!

This is one of the few times I have tried colored pencils and I have never really liked them...this is the first thing I have ever drawn with them that I liked. That wierd pattern is just the store name scrambled up a bit.

Wow, I think you did a great job on this sketch! How fun to work there. I probably would eat my wages if I were there. I bet you meet lots of interesting people too.

I think you have a medium that really works for you. This is good enough to eat.

Joyce, I have NeVer liked pencil crayon either but you've done something so terrific here. I suspect you are living up to your blog name and DRAWing DAILY to have produced such an excellent piece in your sketchbook.

Your colored pencil work looks great!

This is a very nice sketch with colored pencils. For some reason, I've felt similar towards them and have resisted trying them in my Moleskine... but perhaps I'll have to follow your lead and give them another chance. :) The apple looks delicious!

I think your drawing is fantastic, the apple is great. Wish I did as well.

For some reason Joyce I have missed out on seeing your blog lately. What a pleasant surprise to see all your new entries. And such good ones they are too.
The homework/ fabulous, the praying mantis, I love, and the coloured pencil apple and towel are honestly beautiful. You are a natural with the coloured pencil, keep it up! sorry for the essay!!!

Colour pencils can be a very powerful medium if you know how to master it. I like the outcome of the apple. Great detail to the tone. All you need is some time in getting used to it.

Joyce, I love your blog! I used to be a cashier in a supermarket and my manager would have flipped out if I spent anytime drawing.

You are probably right about not blogging about the teens. I've gotten into trouble before with them because of it. Then again, it's nice to know that other mothers are struggling with the same issues. Better and safer to stick to colored pencils!

Ah well, they would not like the idea of me drawing either....but, I was on express, and not to wander too far.
