The grapes were Phew! :faint:

Well, it's impossible not to love the "tutti frutti" photo series, and they are very tempting to use as reference. And what's more, I've seen this particular photo referenced at least 10 times, so that's why I gave you such a low mark on "originality" and "vision".

However, I do think that it was a wise decision to add some purple to the grapes. It compliments very well with the rest of the colours.

The technique is absolutely flawless. Obviously you have a lot of experience in this field. The blending of the colours is just amazing.

I would love to see some original work of yours, you're very talented and I think this is a very good piece if it's considered as study or practice.
What do you think?

I really like this one. Excellent :iconthumbupplz: .And the photograph seems to be very good for drawing with colored pencils. I think that will be the first picture I'd draw with colored pencils when I get them :)

Yes, it is indeed. And I have already seen her gallery a while ago.. must admit, her photos are brilliant for drawing with colored pencils and some also for graphite pencils :) I asked her for permission, she hasn't replied yet...I think this one can be used without permission because it's a present for everyone, right?

This is just so well done! The colour is vivid and smooth. The detail in the eyes is brilliant. I like the purple in those grapes, although I think they could use a bit more "shine" on some of them like the reference picture to make them pop out a bit more and be more round and realistic. I think the official term for those shine bits is are specula but I'm not sure. Anyway, a really well drawn piece!

Thankyou very much! :) even i dont know the technical term but yes but layering in bristol was bit of a problem so i guess that could be a reason.
