Drawing of mushrooms

Pencil sketch
Heavy colored art paper
9" X 12"

A large quantity of mushrooms are now taking over my terrarium. These mushrooms are a bright yellow and are like nothing I have ever seen before. I would like to try to do a color painting of them if I get time.

This subject has proved difficult because of all the individual leaves and mushrooms that overlap and become indistinct if they do not have different values. I have began to add value with additional pencils ranging from HB to 6B after doing much of the drawing with a mechanical pencil.
