Charcoal Botanical II

Earlier I mentioned some small drawings of dead cacti that I made before trying the larger one.

These are all about A5 size and drawn using layers of charcoal and fixative, erasing to make lighter tones and adding touches of white pencil at the end to raise up points of light.

I tend to get lost in the details in tiny things: their texture, the folds and scars and craters. Drawing them close up they become like landscapes or creatures.
