Here’s a couple of pictures of my rosehip sketch I completed in about an hour. It’s very simple but I really love it. I have started an acrylic painting, but it’s still a work in progress. The reference photo is curtesy of The Mad Potter.
The first layer of graphite…….
The second and third layers of graphite are so much easier to apply. Once you have the basic shading it’s really just about light and shade. It’s important you don’t put too much dark on all at once. You need to build it up slowly, it’s very difficult to take it off once it’s on there.
