Today’s design inspiration was the pear:
I did this rendering on vellum paper using the faintest touches of white colored pencil (turned sideways) to suggest the rock crystal. Highlights were added with white gouache paint which I then smudged with a damp paper towel to get the right softness. I really love the way light bounces off of frosted rock crystal and I think doing this rendering on vellum paper was the best choice since the vellum has some of those same semi-transparent qualities itself.
Tomorrow’s design will be the 5th and final in my 5-day series of jewelry designs dedicated to fruit. Its a tropical fruit, the “go-to” fruit for some of my musician friends due to its nerve-calming potassium properties, and also a fruit associated with my childhood since it formed part of one of my nicknames…
Curious? See you tomorrow!
