 This weeks post is another from the series of small spice drawings I've done for my Etsy shop.

 This drawing was done in charcoal pencil on Fabriano Artistico watercolour paper. I love its smooth, bright surface- perfect for such detailed work.

 Rich very kindly polished up a nutmeg for me to bring out the grain and took some photos for me to work from. This was an interesting object to draw- such strong lines yet the rounded shape required subtle blending too.

 I'm actually very happy with the final piece and looking forward to the next one- a cut dried lime :)
