Pine Cones are defined as the “cone-shaped or rounded woody fruit of a pine tree, with scales that open to release seeds.”

This is colored with Derwent Inktense Pencils, which give a bit more control than watercolor. Have you ever tried to sketch one of these?  I found it a bit dizzying because of the spiral patterns and layers but finally got it close to being right on the third try.

  1. Thanks, Snehal. I am enjoying all your bird paintings so much and look forward to seeing a new one each day. I can now tell they are done by you without even looking at the name of the blogger (and on IG, too)! 🙂

  2. Oh My God ! Carol this was a greatest compliment. You made my heart smile 😍 Thanks so much dear. That means a lot to me 💜💜💜
