Image of the Week: Apples


Creative Process:

The magic of burnishing.  

Having signed up to a Udemy Coloured Pencil Drawing Course, I watched a fascinating video on The Magic of Burnishing.  Burnished areas can be created by layering with white, layering with a colourless blender and layering with another light colour.

In the case of my still life apples drawing, I started with a light layer of red leaving a few spaces for the core and for the yellow colouring. Then I applied a heavier layer of red and then used a burnisher pencil which magically produced an image of realistic shiny apples!
