Coffee, Cookies and Chocolate!

Another sketch today, of coffee, windmill cookies, a sugar cookie and a Neuhaus chocolate truffle. 
On Strathmore toned paper, with Derwent Drawing pencils in "Terracotta", "Ivory black", "Venetian red", and "Chocolate" of course!  plus  white chalk pencil.

A page of pears!

Happy New Year!  I hope everyone had a nice holiday season!
I enjoyed the holidays, but now I am glad to have some free time to myself, to relax and do some drawing.  I love my Strathmore toned drawing paper!  I used a sepia Conte pencil, and General's white charcoal pencil, which looked very nice by itself, but I couldn't help to color some in further with a few Conte pastel pencils.
These are small forelle pears.  I only had two of them, I just repositioned and redrew them over a few times.
