Cardoons, sketch in Folio Moleskine

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


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 :>)
