Cardoons, sketch in Folio Moleskine

Cardoon seedheads, lifesize sketch in Folio Moleskine Sketchbook, pencil and coloured pencil

details:


These are last years seedheads and one is splitting and the fluffy centre is spilling out, contrasting beautifully with the spiky scales of the outside. So interesting to draw :>)
