image Apple Three Ways

Who says art supplies need to be expensive? I’ve been drawing the same apple for the last few days: with charcoal and Crayola chalk on cardboard that used to be packaging. I keep the sketches I like, the others end up in the recycling.

Today I made three fast, faster and fastest sketches:

a black and white apple still life
Apple II, (c) Sonya 2016


five-minute apple still life, charcoal and Crayola chalk
Apple III, (c) Sonya

I like the third one best – it’s the one I drew in five minutes. Which is your favourite? And what are your favourite cheapo art supplies?
