Black Walnut, another quick sketch

Without much time this evening, I got in a quick sketch of a black walnut collected over the summer. I'd like to revisit this sometime soon for more detail and possibly a peek inside as well.

Sometimes it is so hard getting started. Doubts of ability to gather up the general shape loom about. Then there is worry over the detail. And then it's all about not having the time. If it's not one thing, then it's another. :-) Sometimes bits of a piece come together and it is just so damned exciting. This all must be compared with those times when hours escape without notice and I couldn't be more content.


  1. This is a keeper for sure- love the dimensional effect you obtained.

  2. I just love dropping in a bit of black with a 3B or 4B--it gives me a shiver when it looks right. :-)
