Cardoon seedhead in gouache and tinted charcoal in a Stillman and Birn alpha sketchbook

Another cardoon seedhead, gouache and tinted charcoal in a Stillman and Birn alpha sketchbook


Another quick cardoon.   This one had shed all its scales, leaving just the fluffy 'fairies' that carry the seeds - one is next to it, so delicate against the large heavy seedhead - and the bristly dried flower petals.

More of the NEC doodles to come .....

Your drawing shows great use of the tinted charcoal. I love the colour range in these pencils.

I do like these cardoon seedheads a lot. Such lovely form and colour in them, I can almost touch them.
