Exercise - Garlic

This week, during drawing class, I started with some studies of garlic. I hope one day to create a Botanic Illustration from it.

The first drawings were done with graphite and watercolorpencil (and water on too thin paper :( 
The second drawing is done in watercolorpencil - I don't think I can work detailled enough with that material. So next time I'll use my regular brushes and watercolorpaint.

  1. Leuk, die oefeningen, zo kom je er toch achter wat je kan met verschillende materialen en wat je het prettigst vindt. Ik vind ze erg leuk geworden. Succes met de tekenles en de botanische tekening!

  2. I love seeing your studies! This is beautiful. You really pay such attention to detail and it shows.

  3. Oh, very nice! I know you said you couldn't work too much detail with just the watercolor pencils, but I think you got the delicate paper-thin skin just right!


Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving me a comment! ♥
