Fooling with Shading - Shadows
We went to the local farmers' market yesterday. Since I am from the South, I was delighted to see fresh okra. I promply brought it home with other items. I don't care for it boiled as the texture is too viscous. However, I do love it coated in cornmeal and fried. It's almost like popcorn. I saved a couple to draw. Overnight one of the roses in a vase near it shattered, so I drew a couple of those petals as well. Used colored pencils to color and was unable to get the really light pink for the one. I was practicing and playing around with different types of hatchmarks for shadows.
