Mandarin and Stones - WIP

"Mandarin and Stones"
9 x 12" colored pencil over oil on Gessobord
This is another stage in the life of this painting...see where it started here. After finishing "Strawberry on a Plate" I decided to put this painting on the Icarus heated drawing board and see if I could get it to a point where Ilike it.

I'm starting to like it with the marks and the bowl lightened up and more color added.  I still have lots of work to do on the cloth, the rocks, the leaves and a bit of work on the mandarin.  The background and the tulip bowl are pretty well near completion.
