My drawing of catkins has gone really well. It took me about 4 mornings of an hour – 2 hours sketching each day. Every time I sat back down to draw it seemed darker and I kept having to go over some previous completed areas. By the third day I realised that the catkins themselves were darkening as they were drying out – 🙂
These are the catkins that I plucked whilst walking Charlie, I thought that in January / February there would be nothing worth sketching, I’d already done holly and pine cones but no, I was wrong, there is plenty.
A progress drawing, this is drawn on Daler Rowney Bristol Board, it is a great surface for these small studies, it holds the graphite well and has a bright white look which then frames well….
The finished piece sitting in its white rustic frame. The piece is 6 x 6″ and is framed to 8 x 8″. If you would like to view it in my shop click here or on the image below…
