Syngonium Podophyllum @ Home

sketch 20160502 plant

#0082  A little indoor houseplant with pink and green leaves – a lovely gift from the weekend!
02 May 2016

PS.  Trying continuous line technique again (although I lost track a few times because there were more leaves than I anticipated), followed by some line work with a finer nib.  Also testing cross hatching for shading – to get a feel of what looks “over-done”.  Anyone with tips on how to improve shadows on the table?

PS(2).  I usually enjoy the result of my sketches more a few days after I’ve finished them.

  1. I like the continuous line effect – it gives the leaves some firmness, which sketchy lines don’t. Cross hatching looks good to. Why not try a water colour wash for the shadows on the table [with no lines]?
