Raspberries – ink and colored pencil on drawing paper

These are some of the actual raspberries from the plant I’d been drawing lately. This was done on Strathmore drawing paper, not the hot-press watercolor I used before. This paper has a bit more tooth and so the texture if a little rougher. I used ink to do the base drawing and then colored pencil over that. It’s a more of a rough drawing than the full plant, but I think it is still a fun piece showing the berries as they ripen.

  1. I think you have really captured the raspberry, lovely drawing and as you say, fun to record different stages. I really like doing blackberries each year.
