Title: Canna flower
Year Created: 2002
Allow digital alterations?: Yes!
This is drawn in graphite pencil with dark highlights in charcoal pencil. I want to submit it for a charity fund-raising book which will be printed in black and white. The original is on a light cream-colored paper (not bluish as the digital photo here).
MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Any comments are welcome, but I would like critique on composition and use of values, also. The flower in my reference photo had rain drops all over the petals. I included only some of the drops, and defined them more than they were on the photo. I was wary of over defining them, thinking they would detract from the flower itself.
Thank you for your input.
Here's a smaller version - I noticed on my screen the first image was too large to see it all at once.
