Sequoia cone

We are coming to the end of the first painting module of the diploma course and this was an exercise in textural repetition.

I picked up this cone in the park on my way home and I'm pretty sure its a Sequoia. Let me know if you disagree...

I've put up an image of the whole sheet so you can see my notes on colours etc. in case you are interested in that sort of thing.

Cones always seem a bit daunting to me with all their fibonacci spirals but I'm enjoying these far more than trying to get veins on leaves looking right at the moment.
