2B graphite pencil in Canson Field sketchbook
Here is my entry for June's virtual sketch date. The reference this month was supplied by Jennifer of Fuzzy Dragons. Thanks Jennifer!
If you check out the reference you will see that I played with the arrangement a little. I liked the shadow and shape of the flower in the lower right better than the large flower in the center. I also loved the bud above it. In fact, if I had more time, I would have used my watercolors or colored pencils to do a color study of that bud. However, since my time this week was limited, I skipped the color study and kept the values in the flower fairly light.
Rose will be creating a post with links to all the sketch date participants once everyone has posted. Make sure you check it out. I think there will be even more entries than last month.
Once again, the commitment to this sketch date had me drawing during a week that I typically wouldn't have managed to squeeze any art time in. I really enjoyed the time I spent on this drawing. It was relaxing compared to the rush of the rest of the week. And now I get to enjoy the anticipation of waiting to see all the other drawings. Hooray!
