I was so late with this I must credit both Rose and Bev with providing the inspiration for my picture as they sent me their images before I did mine. Rose did a lovely botanical watercolour and Bev did a drawing of a necklace made from Chinaberry seeds.
This is based on a pair of earrings I made about three weeks ago.
For my drawing I swapped out the glass beads at the bottom for Chinaberry seeds in their natural state. Then I drew the pattern on the cylindrical beads based on Chinaberry buds.
This became a good sketch for me as I delighted in the subject matter. If I ever get hold of some dried and drilled Chinaberry seeds, I will definitely make myself a similar pair of earrings in the real world.
Materials I used:
Faber-Castel HB pencil
Faber-Castell Polychromos coloured pencils
Van Gogh watercolours
