Still life

scan0031

This is a still life made using a contour drawing and building it up with pen and wash.  I used only a limited pallet: a dark blue, a dark red, two yellows and ochre, and used these colours all over the drawing.  I left some of the paper white for contrast and to emphasize the diagonals.

Pen and wash, 16.5 by 20.5cm
