We're working on three species of holly--a line drawing of a branch and a tonal study of an individual leaf.
My Strathmore paper proved to be a bit bumpy for fine detail so that's being replaced with Stonehenge or Canson. I'm working on catching up with last week's work and homework and completing this week's.
There will be occasional posts each week on this class. I'll get into the details of class instructions and my work.
The sketch above seems rather light because it's in the "roughing in" stage. Once I'm sure that the positioning and shapes are accurate, I will darken in while adding leaf serrations. The lightness of my pencil strokes at this time are important--they can easily be erased.
