Now, beads, SO FUN to draw. Love. I sketched out a few ideas on Tuesday night and finally managed to complete them today.
Beads: This one was the last in my series of sketches, more of an afterthought, and ended up being my equal favourite (along with the poppies!). Funny how that happens. I combined shading mediums on this one - I still don't have a replacement for my lightest grey marker (hopefully in the post tomorrow), so I shaded the beads with markers, and did the drop shadows with greylead.
Poppies and beads! Equal favourite place. I love them, the californian poppies are just starting to bloom in my garden now and I have a few other varieties still to sow for summer.
I kept this one really simple ( I had originally intended for the centre stamens to be strings of beads, then just decided to thread a string of beads through the whole design. Shaded with pencil.
Beads and scrolls: Had to squeeze in some scrolls somewhere! Love drawing nzeppel, too.
Beaded daisy chain: with the beloved cruffle. So perfect for beads.
Huge day at school tomorrow with the kids. We're cooking for a volunteer lunch of 45! I may not surface again for a week :)
