More botanical drawings

This was a fun piece to do because it incorporated pencil work with carbon dust. In order to make the apples so dark and shiny, I had to use a nail file on a carbon pencil to get some dust, then apply the dust to the apples with a small brush.
This class has taught me to really look at things in a new way -- to see texture, shadow and contrast. I can't wait until my next class, when I get to begin using colored pencils!
