My sketching has been ignored for some while. To get back in to the drawing mode some quick 5 minute sketches on small pieces of paper (far less intimidating than big sheets!). Firstly a fine looking gourd in pen and pencil, and then aquatone pencils.
A three legged badger in pastel (I only just realised he was missing a leg!).
And finally some tiny acorns.
If you wish to learn more about following the gourd (or alternatively the shoe), see this classic Monty Python sketch.
