I have been meaning to illustrate a pecan (Carya illinoinensis) fruit to ad to my previous post on hickory fruit.  Today I finally illustrated a pecan nut (without husk) and with a nice weevil hole.

Christmas Present

In October I switched from using Crayola to Faber Castell Polychromos colored pencils - you can see that post here.  I first bought the 25th Anniversary set and then added as many greens and browns to my collection.  I was very happy with these pencils and asked for the rest of the colors for Christmas.  I received a bunch from my mother a bunch from my sister-in-law and some from my wife and now have 117 of the 120.  I am very excited to start the new year.
