Apple Study – Colored Pencil

by Wendi OBrien

This is a little apple study I completed where I take you step by step on how to complete not only the apple, but also the apple itself. This is a great tutorial for the beginner and those looking to advance their colored pencil skills without using OMS.

While you can use OMS (Odorless Mineral Spirits), I usually do not in most of my artwork. If you are used to using OMS then this may be a bit of an adjustment, or just go ahead and use it if you prefer. Either is fine.
