..for drawing cloves. Sorry, that was terrible. I was listening to Ray Charles whilst drawing it AND it did go on way into the night. Yes, it took hours. And hours. Still not sure about the composition. I can see areas where I could add a few more cloves but when do you stop?
I created this for Moleskine China's first birthday. I'm not sure how well it fits the birthday theme, but I like to think there's a party going on on the page. You'll need to click on the drawing to view it better. Excuse the hair on the scan - at least that's what I hope it is!

Goodness!! You do get into something full tilt!! I am amazed at your patience doing these kind of drawings. You can also add jealousy to that statement :)
ditto on teri's comment. You are endlessly and wonderfully inspired on your multiplies. You can make anything look impressive. I love this swirling universe of cloves.
Right. I'm speechless.
(Really, REALLY awesome!)
Oh my goodness ... unbelievable, you are one patient woman ... oh, and did I mention talented?
You do find interesting objects to draw. Now what made you go to your spice cupboard? It feels rightfully balanced to me. Don't you fret.
I would also leave it this way. Great!
Wow! What a fun choice for subject matter, and I agree, it looks beautifully balanced. It must have been very meditative to work on. Next time I'm feeling the need for calm I will have to try cloves.

Your lovely comments make those lost hours worthwhile! (Of course, I really enjoyed those lost hours) Thank you.
Good heavens! Your ability to find art in anything and everything is astonishing!!! I think the composition and number of cloves is just PERFECT!
Wow Andrea, this is amazing! Brilliant!

I keep being told I must have a lot of patience - I never realised that I did. I just thought everybody did this kind of thing!!
You must be the most patient person in the world!!! Great drawing!
