Sketchbook Project 2014 Organised Chaos (page 8) Annelids


I just love doing this kind of doodle!  I was thinking about the fact that earthworms take the dead leaves and make lovely rich compost from them – just another one of natures recyclers.  If it wasn’t for nature’s recyclers what would our Earth look like today I wonder?  I had gesso-ed the page first but forgot that my water soluble graphite pencils would not blend they way I had wanted them to on that sealed surface so I changed to ordinary graphite pencils and blended them with a paper stump instead   Also used a copic multi liner pen and a pink pencil.
