"A slow death" 60x45 cm charcoal

I decided to go a bit bigger and I had a flower that has been slowly perishing and I wanted to capture that movement and melancholia feeling it gave to me. So I set my easel up and came up with this charcoal study of it.

It certainly looks dreary and dying. You achieved your goal.

It is a sad moment, truly. You captured it well.

Lovely detail. There is a definite melancholy feel to it.

Re: "A slow death" 60x45 cm charcoal

Welcome to the forum! This is very well portrayed - the curling leaves and drooping head ...... but I do think the plant is getting a little lost against the charcoal texture of the background!
