Painting and drawing

I am really enjoying Koosje Koene's Just Draw It! e-course at the moment. Above is my homework from last week. It's my second shot at making a realistic-looking apple with colour pencils. I think I could give it one more go...

I'm also doing some painting at the moment. I'm a long way off showing the results but I'm very happy to have a brush in my hand again. I love drawing with pen and pencil in my sketchbook, but it's just a different kind of mental engagement. Maybe it's like the difference between a run and a sprint, or reading a short story compared to a novel. I don't know. Or maybe it's just like the difference between painting and sketching, eh?!
