My colored pencil drawing of Indian corn, this exercise is from the "Colored Pencil Painting Bible". I really had fun with developing this work. You would really be surprise how long it took to build up the layers of colors. Indian corn really provides a wide range of colors.

My pen and ink drawing of the Indian Corn . I was very pleased with how this study came out. It took a lot of time to build up the layers of shade. I watered down some of the ink for the gray parts.

"Indian Corn" Pencil Drawing

I have not been able to work on my art as much as I would like lately. I did this piece before Christmas. I really enjoyed working on this still life of Indian Corn. Each piece in this series took a lot of time, but was very enjoyable to work on. I was trying to depict the different colors you find on an ear of Indian corn.
