Pastel Sketching for 438

Sketching with pastels is fun.  Color makes sketches more finished looking with less work, right?

I sketched on Canson paper with a variety of pastel sticks.  This was quick, 15 or 20 minutes.

For Scavenger Hunt 438 http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1397875

Number 7, fruit - pear
Number 8, vegetable - Italian tomato (very large for the type), a veggie in my mind, some of you may call it a fruit.
Number 9, egg
Number 10, plate

Your color sketches are always fun. I would think they count as paintings.

Bag Blog, I wish! If I could paint in 15 - 20 minutes it would be nice. The minute I stop on a sketch I see 15 things to fix..... Ha.

technically it is a fruit since it has seeds ;)

Jennifer Rose,

I know, I know, but couldn't find a "real" veggie. Ha.

Yummy reds, Jo!

Hi, Alice Jo! I love painting in red. Apples and tomatoes are my "fall back" things when I can't think of what to paint. Thanks.
