Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. Hi Cynthia, Here is my first project. I wish I had drawn the flower using a grid. I didn't, and ended up erasing the drawing so many times I had lines and wear on my paper. The reference photo on my Mac made the flower look very bleached out and I did not even realize the there was so much pink and blue in the flower until I saw other people's projects. I had a look at the reference photo on an older laptop I have that uses windows and the colours on the reference photo looked completely different. By then I had worked on my flower so much I had hardly any tooth left on the paper. I am not that happy with how it turned out although it looks better in person then it does in the photo. I used Prismacolor pencils, a few Polychromos pencils and a bit of my Derwent China White drawing pencil. The paper I used is Strathmore mixed media 400 series. I used Mona Lisa Odorless Paint Thinner on the background after my first layer of black and then coloured 3 more layers of pencil using Tuscan Red, Black Grape and another layer of Black. I did learn a lot from this and hope that my next project turns out better. Thank you for the great lesson. Is the piece for sale? No What are you most proud of? That I persevered as it took me so long to do. I did not give up trying to make it work.
