Plant Stalk, oil pastel and pencil study

┬áThis oil pastel study was made┬átoday which is slightly smaller than A1. I’d decided that last week whilst exploring this particular plant that the stalk interested me the most. So I made this piece looking at it in more depth. However, I think I may already have the composition that I want to use for a painting so now consider this one just research. I enjoyed making it although am a bit tired as I was up very early. Will share a close-up next which is always interesting as it makes me see my own work differently too.
