Apple by the teacher


I have been so depressed about not having time to do any art this week that I 'stole' some time that should have belonged to something else and reintroduced myself to some comfortable old friends. I usually give my Friday lunch time over to a virtual classroom with my Year 11 Software students while multitasking on computer room duty. This week, however, the Forbes students were having a midterm long weekend, while almost all of the Sydney students were off on a physics excursion to Luna Park. I took my lunchtime apple and the pastel pencils that I had carried back and forward to school all week, for no reason, and found a quiet corner in the computer room. This drawing on Canson Mi-Teintes pastel paper is the result.

Someone who took the time to look at it on Wet Canvas noticed that it showed two light sources. How observant! The room where I was doing lunch duty had a door to the outside open on the left of where I was sitting, giving a strong light source and windows on the right, giving another filtered light source. It makes the drawing look a little odd but did make the viewers think ... I think!

I noticed, and I love it. Draw what you see. :)
