My wife bought a few pineapples the other day so I thought they would make a great pastel still life. As usual I jumped right in. It didn't take very long before I noticed this piece wasn't going well. I failed to capture the pattern on the pineapple. That is what happens when you draw what you think rather than what you see. Also that purple I chose for the background wasn't working.
Fear not. I grabbed another piece of paper and started fresh. Why belabor a piece that is not working. However, the new piece is not going well either so I drowned my sorrow in a bag of peanut M & Ms.
Here is the first piece that was not going well and a picture of the said pineapples.
