Painting Again

I have been travelling and distracted for the past number of months.  I have not worked on my art for 6 or 7 months.  I took the pencils with me but did not push through to create anything.

I started a project last August at the Colored Pencil Society Convention but have not completed it.  I start a new class next Wednesday so I thought I should dust things off.

The reference photo

I started the work in the class so was drawing from scratch with no particular need to be accurate, just to try out the new techniques.

Here it is tonight.


I like the colors and am improving the textures.  If I had my druthers, I would have been more particular about the front leaf being as large as in the reference photo but this one is all about learning a new technique so que sera sera.

    The likeness is amazing! Even in the photo above…it could remain that way without the whole area being “drawn”.
