Still going with the sunquats!

More experimenting with coloured paper. This time I broke out the Canford. I used 'royal' blue as a near complementary to the yellow/orange fruits.

Using a 'good' support did make a difference. It felt so much nicer to work on and took many more layers of colour. Choosing blue though, made it very had to get a bright orange, and the colours in this are much more subdued. I did this with polychromos and koh-i-noor pencils and I added a little chalk to the white highlights.

I like the way the leaves defy the edges. Very nice.
