Arlene this is a quickie? Oh how I wish I could produce a sketch as good as this even when I take my time. You are an awesome artist.
:clap: beautiful Arlene :)
great work in such a short time, I wish I could do something like this even in 3 times as much :)

Earlene and Bubi, after you have your outline it's just a question of getting your darks and lights put in...look at it as shapes and not a finished item when you start...
Ivy, I found the matboard good for this technique of wanting to have the background show through, but I prefer the stonehenge...
Beau, We're all waiting to see yours...
Halachmi, thank you and yes compared to my usual 40-60 hours per drawing, this is quick...I try my best even when doing a quickie... :angel:
Ronnie, thanks and I'm looking forward to meeting you.

I kept staring at this and it was bothering me...not enough contrast...i went back and added more...the colors actually are cleaner than in the scan.

Deliscious :) The 3D effect from the center is excellent. Well done Arlene (((hugz))))

Really like this Arlene.
I use mat borad alot, have yet to try stonehenge. I did pick some up at the art store on Monday when I was there. Now what to do with it?

Thanks TeAnne...It was fun doing something fast for a change...course now I keep looking at it and wanting to tweak it a bit! LOL.
Phil...While I enjoyed working on this, it wasn't the same as stonehenge...for layering tons of color, nothing beats the stonehenge...it seems to absorb the color.

Why not draw another one then and do to it what you want too?
The fast one works. :) Leave as is.
Go for it girl. I dare ya. :D

Actually, I am leaving it alone, as I've already started a new large, detailed flower...a dahlia taken from another of Miss Mouse's photos, and cropped.
This is lovely Arlene. Looking forward to seeing the dahlia.
Actually you have inspired me to take close-up cropped photos of the flowers in my garden.
As for the stonehenge, am finally trying it:) and I love it too. Darrell, if you happen to be reading this don't fall off your chair, ok? lol
