These are real beauties Carol - lots of work, lots of patience - beautiful result!
They remind me of old botanical illustrations.

Oh Carol, these are simply stunning. See what I would have missed out on had this new forum not started. I don't think I've ever been to any of the pencil forums. I must traverse this great WC universe more often!

These are gorgeous, I think I like the middle one the best.

Boy do you have patience.
:lol: you should see me wield a pencil. I find drawing to be faster than painting. Each of these was about 10 hrs, the fuschia probably a little less in time. When I get in the groove, they just pop out.

Thank you for the comments

These are incredibly well done graphite drawings. Just amazing, really like the camelia with the dew drops. I have never seen flowers rendered so well in graphite.

I particularly love the fuschias too. Looks like a plate from a rare and very expensive book!

Beautiful work! The Fuschia reminds me of an old fashioned botanical print. Absolutely amazing work.

I love graphite work - especially well done. Myfavourite is the water lily and the camelia next
What paper and pencils grades did you use ?
