Olive Branch Sketch (Sketch a Day, Day Two)


I like to research the plants, animals and parts of nature that I draw. Knowing something about them scientifically and culturally somehow helps the drawing to be find and its way more easily.

So, accordingly, I looked into olives. Did you know there are hundreds of different varieties?  In many shades. Some which never turn black. Some which spend hardly any time green. Who knew? Well, clearly lots of people. But it's been an education. (Pen and Komorebi Watercolours BTW).

More tomorrow.

PS. I will only be posting some of the challenge sketches here. But you can find (and comment) on them all on Instagram, and the new-look BoundingSquirrel Facebook Page.
