Botanical Workshop: Gourds

It is the season for gourds, and they are wonderful and fun subjects to render. Using colored pencil or graphite, or both, portray these fall beauties realistically on paper. It is a good exercise in light on form, whilst learning to capture their waxy nature or warty texture.
