Last night I went to bed at about 12:00. I was not able to sleep immediately until I think almost 3am. So this morning I got up late and feeling not really good. I sat on our sofa until 9:30 and then prepared my breakfast. While I was eating, suddenly I thought of my new box of charcoal. I decided then to pick it up and drew this apple to try it. I have been using pastels but this is my first time ever to use a charcoal. I think I will use this medium more often for my drawing exercises. Jonagold apple is my favorite kind of apple. Its taste is somewhat sweet and sour, and really crispy.
I have been missing my brushes and watercolors. So when I found time this afternoon, I immediately did this quick watercolor sketch directly on my 400g acrylic paper. I'm beginning to like this thick paper.
