Art Project A Day #5

Art Project A Day #5. I have loved seeing Goat's Beards at the side of the road while traveling. They look like huge dandelions, which have gone to seed. I had fun drawing this one, however I did not really capture it's true beauty. It also needs more contrast, but I am done for today, so it is done, too. I intend to do it again, maybe when I see another one in person. That's really the best way to get a true rendition of a subject.

I did this with drawing paper, number 2 pencil, and a blending stump. I did much of the drawing with the eracer, at the end when it was too dark.

  1. Did you ever make a wish with these? This couldn't have been easy to draw? Wow lots of little detail. I especially like the shadow on the stem and the curve in the background. Great work.
