I did this particular drawing just before Christmas, and yesterday I got around to doing more, mainly because I thought I'd better draw the things while I could still get use out of them in the kitchen!
Using pastels on coloured paper is the best, I've used various darker and medium shades of red, orange, blue, purple, and it just makes the colours pop! I think I'll do some landscapes in the same medium, see what comes out.
Might have a go at them with paint too. Hmm.
