Thistle Time - Teri Casper

Thistles are so interesting and so fun to sketch!
This is the last page in my Robert Bateman sketchbook and is done in ball-point pen.The pages are wonderful for ink, pencil and colored pencil but watercolor makes the page buckle unless it is VERY light.


  1. Looks great...and I just took a burr from my dogs paw while we were in the field just this morning.

  2. I like how you have captured the prickliness of it and also the delicacy.

  3. Teri, I love the way ballpoint worked here--both bold and delicate. Lovely!

  4. Any time is great for thistles! This is a lovely tribute to the "very end" of the thistle!
