Draw Something Green



I'm way behind with my EDM Challenge Sketches because I got stuck on Draw a Fence - all I can find around here is stone walls. I'm also behind with my garden journal sketches so I thought - I'll do Draw something Green. Green figs. Except there is no challenge called Draw something Green! I am calling this one EDM Challenge 24 - Draw a Piece of Fruit.

I recently received a gift of willow charcoal from my friend, Margi so I sketched HWEM working in the garden. Apart from giving him a very distorted pelvis, I think I've made him look rather menacing.

Looks like you're going to have some nice figs to eat later in the year! I especially like the rendering of the leaves.

These figs are beautiful, Robyn!Nice colors and great texture on the leaves.
I like the "gardener" too...he looks busy and concentrated!

Robyn, che pitture tanti belle! Mi piace molto la frutta ed anche il tuo marito. whew...that was hard. I mean to say I like the sketch of your husband, not that I like your husband...but I probably would! These are fantastic!

The fig leaves are super! I like the drawing of your husband. I see you keep him busy. Nice shading on it.

Your figs drawing is fantastic. it looks as if it was photographed right out of some old botanical book.

*lol - about HWEM and his lawyers

Thank you all. It is wonderful motivation to keep sketching (rather than just enjoying all your blogs) when you are all kind enough to comment.

HWEM - Maybe I'm seeing you in a different light since you purloined my garden studio.
