I like to change my medium up a bit by experimenting with other forms. For these acorns, I started with a water soluble pencil, then added color with a few watercolor pencils, lastly sepia ink with a pen nib and well.
I think this one is my favorite. It’s a bur oak acorn with a weevil hole.
This is the tiniest of them all. Little nut and cap. Little color, little ink, which I think works just fine.
Speaking of weevil hole….
I collected the acorns a week ago, but did not have time to draw them so I placed the acorns in this glass votive cup and placed them to the side. To my surprise a week later, when I dumped out the acorns, I found 4 tiny ALIVE weevil larvae were squirming at the bottom. I had no idea.
