Scottish Still Life

A few days ago, one of my sketching groups came to my house and we set up a Scottish still life to honor one of our sketcher's birthday and ancestory. We had flags and jewelry, porcelain Scottie dogs, golf balls and tees, and of course scones, smoked salmon, shortbread and more. This drawing shows some of the leftover items.




I wouldn't call this one a sketch, since I spent much longer on it than I usually do and I drew most of it in pencil first. It's not my usual way of drawing, but I have to admit that I did like coloring in all the detail afterward.
