Another scheduled post today as I'm busy with work at the moment. This time a twig which I picked up whilst walking round the loch.
It's drawn in charcoal again, using the paper stump to blend the tones and I also experimented more with heavy and light pressure to give the twig some shape.
It's a little fatter than the real thing but overall I've captured the shape and I found that it was relatively easy to describe some of the finer detail around the two tiny branches. I used a kneadable rubber to 'remove' the highlights along the twig.
