hello everybody! :wave:
Usually I am lurking about on the coloured pencil forum but i thought this new one would fit in well here.
I have only just started botanical art I usualy do animal/wildlife :cat:
Hope you like it c&c welcome of course

ps. The detail is finer on the original, its hard to scan these finer pieces on a scanner the colours are never as true. C'est la vie! ;)

Beautifully done! Hope this will encourage you to try more botanicals...

I haven't yet tried a botanical. I have 2 or 3 books I've read about it. Both your scans look good, but the second one shows more depth of color. Very detailed.

Your acorns and oak leaves are really lovely. Very nicely drawn and the colors are perfect.

We've had a bumper crop of acorns here where I live, the squirrels are going crazy burying them all over our yard. :rolleyes:

This is a lovely piece of artwork Steph-welcome and look forward to seeing more. Sylvia - it's raining acorns here too, millions of them in our backyard.
