I saw some big, fat rosehips in Queens Park. They looked so inviting in the late autumn sun, I made a quick sketch of them and later put on a wash and used my pen.

I drew carrots on a plate, then used pastel pencils to put colour on them. I kept to the real colours and shadows. From a shortish distance, it looks like the landscape between the towns of Clinton and Balclutha in a dryish summer.

A few carrots on a plate were the subject of this sketch. Again, I worked with them in different hues to see if it changed the results.

I had a plate of broccoli bits, I drew and then shaded them. I wanted to see if my impression of them would change if I changed the tone I used. Hence the two similar drawings in the two different hues.
