Fruit Line Up

I am using this as an exercise for my drawing students. Slowly build up lighter colors over the darker colors that are put down first. I encourage using sharp pencils and light pressure to preserve the tooth of the paper. Colored pencils are translucent and can create beautiful colors by layering.  Shadows were added using violet.

Here are photos of the drawing as it developed. Click on the pictures to enlarge!
