Looking around in the hedgerows and in the garden, you can’t help but notice how Autumnal things are looking. Perhaps it’s because we’ve had such a dry summer, but there are seed heads and berries everywhere. And among them is the Honesty with its dark twigs and silvery discs.
I did this sketch the other day to get used to the Honesty shapes, colours and textures. No preliminary drawing. I just went in with sepia acrylic ink and a bit of stick sharpened to make a drawing tool. I used some watercolour in raw sienna and cobalt blue and a brush to add to the washes as well.
