Here is the fourth drawing in my ‘Elements of Nature’ series. I chose to use all native plants for the series, and this one emphasises that. Once again I completed this drawing very fast so I only have two images to show. One halfway through and the other the finished drawing.

This drawing includes gum leaves, gum nuts and flowers from a flowering gumtree.

And here is the final, finished drawing. It took two and a half hours to complete. I used to hate working with pencils because of the very fine tips – I found them time consuming and frustrating. But now I am starting to really enjoy drawing with  grey-lead (in monotone), rather than coloured pencils. If I had done this series in colour it would have taken me three times as long.

I am really happy with the way this drawing turned out. I think this is my favourite of the series.
