I've re-worked this 8x12 colored pencil piece since I originally posted it. I added a slight background to show the plum shapes and strengthened the reds/yellows in the light areas of the plums. I've also strengthened the white highlights in the glass dish. Not going to do anything else to it--enough is enough. I believe I chose a paper that was too dark and nearly lost the plums! I learned a lot and look forward to trying another challenge with toned paper.
