Peanuts

One of my students whose family lives on a farm and raises peanuts, generously brought me a huge bag of the legumes. I roasted them over the weekend and tried to capture their subtle textures in this sketch.

You have captured the color and texture of the peanuts very well.

What a fun post Lin! Peanuts like this-just grown are something I never see. Great shading and texture.

You certainly captured these textures very well. I especially like the little threads at the ends of some of them. I forgot peanuts have those!

Ooh, yes! Peanuts, get your peanuts here. Very convincing detail, Lin.
