Back to drawing Plums

Now that I have finished Dave's birthday present I can get back to drawing the Plums, in fact this morning I woke up with an idea... a single branch of plum's stitched and painted on to a tissue paper patchwork background, would like to get a bit of hand quilting into the tissue background. Landscape and long and narrow. Will need to draw some branches for myself from plum trees, will google some pictures for me to try and draw. Inspired, I completed my 9 studies that I set out to do :-)
Limited palette seems to work well.
Quick black and white sketch to trying and catch movement.
Limited colour sketch with Caran D'ache, like that the roughness of the paper shows through.
Tonal sketch with my black All pencil.
And finally the finished page :-)
