Apples such as this Crispin (Mutsu) variety are such wonderful subjects for colored pencils, a medium that’s great for rendering the bright saturated colors of the fruit. It’s fun to capture the changes in hues using layers of color and a delight to see the beautiful colors subtly reflected in the cast shadows.
