Found vertebra, Drawing, Pencil on Paper.

Not sure this is finished but I will stop for now. I found this bone exciting, the holes especially thrilling, and hard to draw. One more bone I reckon and then I shall move on….

Drawing Pencil on Paper

We came across some bones on our travels. I hope it doesn’t upset the ecosystem that I brought them home to draw. A small hip bone, perhaps from a civet or meerkat, and the upper jaw of a ruminant. They are very weathered and rather beautiful. I am spending about 3 hours per drawing. It is concentrating my mind and hand. And it feels good to really look. The better you look the better you draw. Next week I will do some clay work too…
