Bit of a quickie this week…………
Started the week having a go at some pumpkins, they are satisfying to sketch with their lovely round forms.
Then my eye was caught by a Callicarpa growing in the garden, it catches my eye and my attention every year because of the glorious colour of the berries, its common name is ‘beauty berry’ and I understand why.
I decided to make this the subject of my next coloured pencil drawing….. a great excuse to use the purples that have been lurking around unused since I tried a Cerinthe back in the spring. Lush!
A close up of how it is progressing.
