Brambles – after photo by Nexus (53)


I found this photo on nexi’s blog and thought, I’d try my hand on it.. Maybe i could have continued longer, and gotten the contrasts a little better down, but even with a 6b which is the softest pencil i have, it doesn’t get nearly as dark as i would want it to. Maybe at some point i’ll go look for come “conte crayons” or graphite pencils.. or charchoal to mix into my darker drawings, but for now, I’m trying to get by with the materials that i have.

They seem really delicious! – We gathered  portion of our own a few weeks back – they weren’t really sweet, but i had a fantastic milshake made from them, with a little sugar added.
