Week 14. Medieval brooches and spoon

I looked through a magnifying glass to draw these - I found beautifully detailed decoration on the round silver brooch. The spoon made an interesting shadow, like a face! I drew them life size - the round one is about 2cms across.

Week 13. Medieval roof tiles (fragments of)

Each one was a subtly different colour with some having inner strata of darker material. I did a watercolour wash on all then completed each with different drawing media - pen & ink, conté crayon, pencil etc.
