Very cool. Took me back to watching the waves on the coast.

Re: Too Good To Use... Hardbound 2004-05

Thank you! I was so surprised it came out well. I'm going to have to do some more surf scenes, have always been fascinated with surf and oceans.

Here's some entries I did for the Plant Parade on the next page:


Frangipani Page
8 1/2" x 11"
Lyra Rembrandt colored pencils and Pitt Artist Pens including big brush
Photo references by Dewi for Plant Parade. I think they looked a little better separated into two images, with the ragged edge on the bottom one and with the colored pencil being so much lighter than the pen painting. But I still like the page as a whole.

The flowers you did in colored pencil are the same you showed on the other thread in water color? I think I like these better. But, I couldn't tell you why exactly. I'm still amazed what you are doing with those Pitt Pens.

Yep! Same flowers, the ones on the bottom are from two more references, the big square one is the same reference as the watercolor in my Pentalic sketchbook. This month's Plant Parade is all frangipani in different colors.

That is so cool, Rachel! Thank you - if you're used to seeing them all the time and like this, then I must have gotten the anatomy pretty well. Thanks!

FANTASTIC frangipani flowers Robert, and you have them spot on. I just LOVE these flowers and the one out the back is starting to shoot new leaves, so by mid-summer, I should have a plethora of flowers just begging to be painted from life! HEHEHE

Stacey, thank you! That's wonderful you have them growing in your yard. Looking forward to your life drawings of them. I love frangipani.

Rachel, thanks! Why not plant more in different colors? They have such a wide range and I'd love to have some if I lived where they grew easily.

Re: Too Good To Use... Hardbound 2004-05

Both great flower studies but I think I am rather partial to the cp version - the subtle colour and the twisted new flowers waiting to open are beautiful - good job!

Thank you! I think I got the transparency of the petals better in the CP version too, it came out very light.
