I started by producing a simple line sketch in pencil to get to grips with the shape. In the following sketches I looked at shading.
I decided to go with my instincts!
I'm very sorry that I haven't got any 'cutting back' photos this time. The truth is, that whilst one part of my brain was concentrating on what my hands were doing, the other side of my brain was trying to help solve a murder with Val Mc Dermid via audiobook! It was hot & humid & ...what can I say...I could only do two things at once!!
These pods were fun to do & I enjoyed producing them in an altered colour scheme. The shape of the pods are particularly pleasing & I'm glad I kept the squiggles in!
Next week may see me return to look closer at another stage in the agapanthus life cycle, as I feel quite inspired now! What a positive start to the week!
