A quick sketch. Have been a bit lacking in inspiration but needed the drawing therapy so picked up this garlic bulb and decided to just go for it. Took me a couple of hours and am feeling much better.
For a change I used paper that is a bit more textured than I normally draw on. I just wanted to try to get the slightly rough papery feel of it instead of going into too much detail ... sometimes it's good enough just to try to capture the essence of the subject/object without digging in too deep -- I have to keep reminding myself of that!
I love garlic by the way, just can't live/eat/cook without it. Yum :)

This drawing took me far longer than any one preceding it. Probably because it is to go up for auction, which made me extremely nervous ... the original photograph by Siew Te Wong is up at http://sunbears.wildlifedirect.org/page/2/.
I'm exhausted. It's been a long and chaotic couple of months and I now have to get down to organising myself and getting back to normal. Whatever 'normal' may be :)
