Plant, oil pastel and soft pencil

Here’s a plant drawing I made yesterday as part of my still-life explorations. It’s in oil pastel and soft pencil again on paper slightly smaller than A1. I let the drawing talk back to me and it became the stalk and the shadows around it that interested me most. I took some close-ups which I’ll share next. I feel a painting coming on through one of those. I’m looking for colour and light next to shade in these dark January days through these drawings.
