Beer, Bread & Berries Artwork and tutorial

Beer, Bread and Berries
8x10 inches
Coloured pencils on Drafting film

My poor old blog gets a bit neglected these days and I do apologize to anyone who may follow it, but it seems to be a constant battle juggling and prioritising art work, family and maintaining internet sites. This is my latest artwork and tutorial and whilst I do enjoy drawing people and animals it was a lovely, refreshing change to draw a still life and particularly one that had a range of surfaces and textures. This artwork was worked on both sides of the drafting film to firstly intensify some of the richer colours such as the strawberries and stein and also to create the softer reflections that appear underneath. If you would like to learn how to draw something like this using coloured pencils on drafting film, you can purchase this tutorial for a small fee from either my website at www.karenhullart.com or my Etsy store.
