Mandarins and Tulip Bowl Take a Zig Instead of a Zag

My last update to this piece was on Christmas Eve! It had a wee bit of oil paint added since then (see the first photo up in this post. But I could never get around to finishing it. I oil paint so much differently now than when I started this. A CPSA friend of mine, Melissa Miller Nece, combined oil paint and colored pencil with her entry into CPSA's ET!7 I was so intrigued with the idea that I decided to try some colored pencil over the top of the oil paint on this painting. I'm somewhat happy with the results, but there is definitely more work to do. I will share the finished piece with you in the next couple of days.

The background is the only thing with colored pencil

The leaves, orange and tulip bowl have had some cp applied

Today's version

The table top and left hand rock have not had any cp applied

Interesting idea, adding cp to oils - you can't tell by looking at the photo! I love the subtle glow in your background.
