ok get your minds out of the gutter...I'm talking about a colored pencil drawing! ;)
this is 4" x 4" and is done with colored pencil on stonehenge paper. This one only took about 10 hours...for me a quickie! My source was one of Rod's flower photos from his CD
the red's are a bit off...in the original it's not quite so yellow a red, but if I change the red the other colors are off, so...

I really like it, even if the "red is off"... I like it! I do not yet have the guts to use color... jeremy
Arlene your flowers floor me. They are so beautiful and in pencils Amazing *S* :clap:

Thank you Jeremy...for me doing something in color is alot easier, because it's all there in front of you...I find graphite difficult to do, as I don't see the planes, and shadows as well when trying to convert to b/w...funny, isn't it?
Luvy, thanks! Pencil is actually very easy to work with! that's why I like it so much...and no mess too!

Not to take anything away from Arlene & her vibrant flowers, but to be able to capture the values as you do when you work in black/white(&gray) is most valuable:clap:. In fact, some teachers insist that portrayals are done in black/white since they KNOW if a person can do it, adding colors is a walk in the park.
