I’m having fun with these acorn drawings. Even though my style is usually loose, painting watercolor glazes over a graphite drawing produces a detailed, realistic painting and it’s a nice change of pace. These miniature pieces of art are fun and affordable.
“Occupied Acorn” is on a 5×5 piece of illustration board. Many layers of watercolor washes created a glowing acorn that looks just like the original acorn.
This “Tiny Acorn” is super cute and barely 1 inch long. I feel in love with its over-sized cap.
And here we have the trio. I added a little more shadow from the other day and blended it with a blending stump.
