Red apple & pear

This was the first coloured pencil drawing I had done and it was interesting to see the layers develop and then adding the burnishing to make the apple shine. Pleased with the result, but will try again in 3, 6 and 12 months to see if I improve. The pear came from Susan Rubin's class - start up library. Looking at the pear (2nd colour pencil drawing), I can see where I need to have more depth of shadow. First time trying to draw a shadow under the pear and feel that I really messed it up. Next time will be better :)
