My first submission for the virtual sketch date- my favourite winter fruit. I was inspired to join in by some fellow artists!
I overworked the back, right peel segment unfortunately- that's what happens when you try to do Latin and Greek while drawing :-o
Arches HP Paper, Prismacolor Pencils, White Gelly Roll pen.

  2. Hi - been trying to find a name for you - so I'll call you Rose - well being English in a foreign country it suits you. By the way which part of England do you come from?? I'm in Norfolk.
    Enjoyed the clementine sketch and earlier posts. Will continue to visit.

  5. Thank you Rachel- I have really come to appreciate the colours you get in coloured pencils!

    Joan, it's Rachel, but I'll answer to Rose too ;) I'm from Bedfordshire- not too far from Norfolk :p

    Thank you Lynn :) Several recent additions to my pencil collection helped- I REALLY like the pumpkin orange...

    Ann- thank you! It was your picture that made me want to draw it *grin*.
