WIP: Apples in a plasticbag

Hi guys, bought some apples yesterday and shot about 30 photos before there was one that jumped out at me to paint, here it is so far(may have chewed off more than I can eat ), still a lot of work to do on it.
It's on Sennelier pastel card, 17" x 14", using Rembrandts soft sticks and Carb Othello pencils.

Re: WIP: Apples in a plasticbag

This is great. I love what you have so far, you've established the delicate transparency of the plastic bag and the apples are well rounded, solid, grounded on their surface. This rocks. Onward!

Re: WIP: Apples in a plasticbag

Ah, Nicoclaus, giving Andrew Hemingway a run for his money? He hung the plastic bag up and suspended the apples...

I think this looks quite good! You can chew it, I think. (How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. )

Re: WIP: Apples in a plasticbag

Whoa, Nicoclaus, this looks super!!! As a newbie to pastels, I'm amazed what you folks can do with the pastelcard. I got a sample and the grain is a bit too course for me, but part of that is likely my inexperience with pastels and not knowing how to handle them exactly.

Anyway, I'm amazed at your realism here and really look forward to watching this develop! Thanks so much for doing this as a WIP!
