Using Oil Pastel

Guava-original Artwork

           A bunch of guava fruit from our grandaunt's backyard when I and my cousins visited her. I picked it up from the tree, lay it down still on a table and started to sketch it first with a pencil, to make the outline. Then I started to trace it first with black color for the dark areas and edges, color yellow to make it ripe as it is, and the color green for the leaves and to cover a little ripeness. We ate the guavas after I used it as a subject for still life. 

           I tried to experiment with oil pastel for the still life and the result was good. I never mind the shadows because I was just trying the Oil pastel.
