Another day another attempt! This time line drawing a flower. As you will see the first attempt at a Rose Bud was not as good as I would have liked, the bud was a pale golden yellow (and beautifully perfumed)but there was hardly any contrast in the shade of the petals and they were not large enough to present a good line – the rest was OK though. Please excuse the quality of the photos, these were taken very early and I didn’t have my glasses handy 🙂
The second drawing I finished early this morning, as the high winds kept me awake!
This was a silk Tulip from the Bedroom and the colour is a fabulous deep purple graduating to a paler shade.
The drawing was completed in pencil and then I decided to christen the Pitt Pens I have just purchased. I love the bold lines they give and the crisp outline, but I think that with a more delicate subject, such as the Rose bud, I would prefer to use pencil.
I deliberately placed the Tulip off centre(just because I could) I like the way it divides the negative space into 2 nicely shaped areas. I don’t yet know how to represent glass items so a basic outline will have to do until I find out!
I am loving the relaxation that drawing brings and the way you can become totally absorbed by the process of really seeing the subject and nothing else. I can’t hear the music on the radio and my Husband’s voice seems to irritate me terribly when I’m ‘in the zone’. Very strange.
Hope you are enjoying your week-end
