Another gourd drawing...

Another drawing of my little gourds, this one is graphite, and white charcoal on Ingres paper.  I think I will wind up doing a painting of one of these drawings.

More gourd drawings...

I made a little change to the one above,  and added the acorn.  I thought it made a nice addition to the composition.
And.. I colored in my other drawing (below) with pastels...

Pastel on Canson paper
I think it might be nice to mat and frame some of these.

Little Gourds

It's that time of year!  I bought a few of these colorful little gourds to draw and paint.  I love their shapes and colors.  

I did this drawing with charcoal pencil, and white chalk on light gray colored Canson Ingres paper.

Charcoal and Pastel

Cloth, lemon, cup and vase.   Charcoal and white charcoal on Ingres paper.  I love this type of drawing- black and white on mid-toned paper. 

A crab apple from a tree in my backyard.  These drawing are done on a pad of Strathmore charcoal paper. 

The one on top is graphite pencil and white charcoal.  The one on bottom is charcoal and colored with pastel pencil.  I enjoyed doing these drawings and later, picked a few more apples and did an oil painting of them.
