Ive been drawing unfamiliar creatures and tackling the seashore life within an unpublished story written by Chris Green. Crab is one of the a key characters in the story I’ve tackled him in watercolour and some acrylic ink colour too. Ive been using a Derwent Graphitint pencil in Warm Grey which I hope to compare with ink line in my next post.
Last September I drew roses from the hedges such as the briar rose and took some photos. My aim was to celebrate and depict the name Rose Wren . They are all so beautiful and its a real challenge drawing the roses structure so I have started with the more simple form of a Briar rose which complements a first birthday for a little girl I know.
Now I was looking at roses I continued with studies of a rose from a neighbours allotment, I found that the as the rose fades it develops a fragility with its form becoming a good subject to draw. The wren is another challenge altogether. This mid red rose was drawn with coloured pencils on cartridge paper
