Last time I was taking liberties with the original image in my color pencil drawing. This time I continue to do so, altering the arc of a sliver of red onion, adding and shifting the placement of peas, adjusting a potato. I’m effectively not doing a photo-realistic copy of this still life, but my interpretation of it so that it looks the way I want it to. The original photo becomes an inspiration only. I’m not sure how I feel about this, especially since the photo itself has been so artfully styled.
