Seed pods

I tried to sketch some seed pods but failed miserably. The sketch looks more like some worms or snakes 😀. At first I thought I would not show this awful sketch but then changed my mind. I did this sketch with Derwent watercolour pencils.


  1. i though they were brown dry pea pods not snakes :)

  2. They look to me like what you intended them to be. However, since you pointed it out I can see a resemblance to snakes and worms!

  3. I agree they look like pods to me - i think you did a nice job on them.

  4. Pea pods without a doubt, you are very talented Shashi.

    You will probably laugh when I tell you a lady at my Pilates class gave me an adult colouring book yesterday! The previous week the group had been chatting about dealing with stress, and I made some comment about always being up tight. This lovely lady of 81 years old who I don’t know very well arrived with the book and instructions for me to buy watercolour pencils. She assures me I will feel a hundred times better as soon as I start colouring. I’ve just ordered the pencils from Amazon as I have a feeling she will be checking up on me next week. There really are some lovely people in the world.

    1. Thank you Barbara. How wonderful! I can't wait to see what your water colour book is like. What a kind lady to bring you a book to colour and de- stress.
