"Blue Jar & Persimmons"

This colored pencil piece, on Fabriano paper, is called "Blue Jar & Persimmons."  It is based on a photo taken last autumn, when the persimmons were ripening on my tree.  Pencils used were the Luminance line, from Caran d'Ache.  They are lightfast, which is important, for the long life of the art.
