This is my first work on watercolor canvas board. I really like the surface and its durability. These boards are a bit expensive, compared to buying big sheets of Arches CP papers, but that just means I am acting like an artist for a change and planning things before committing them to the support. Not a bad habit to pick up.
Colored pencils, my favorite medium so far, called my name and I began this still life from a photograph I took very early one morning. This fruit bowl is usually in our kitchen, but moved it around the house looking for good morning light and reflections. It's coming along. I am still wary of sitting for too long, or standing either, for that matter. So, while the watercolor layers dry, I work on this one.
So, I feel like I am returning to that new routine I was beginning to ease into and still in the artist's life. What better way to express that than to start off with some still life?
