Autumn is my favourite time of year, the rich, warm colours and crisp clear mornings cheer me more than the heat of summer.
I have drawn pine cones in the past, much less detailed and wanted to make the pine cone an important part of this drawing and not just a prop for the cute mouse.
Whilst drawing the pine cone was an enjoyable, although timeconsuming process, the search for a title was a struggle, I eventually settled on a rather long one as the shorter more punchy titles weren't seeming to strike the right chord.
This drawing was done using only Faber Castell Polychromos pencils, no blending solutions or powders were used. The paper is Strathmore Bristol Vellum. Finished size is 8"x10".
