Love that subtle pink in there, Pam. Do you think you’ll leave the leaves sepia, or will you put green on top? 🙂 You did a nice job showing the 3-d shape of the bud without losing the lightness in the petals.
Looking good! Practice sharp edges by taking a very sharp pencil and making a nice line at the edge, but then feather it into the rest of the form so it reads more like an edge and less like an outline. Practice on some scrap paper first. 🙂 Let me know if you need a visual explanation, and I’ll try to attach one.
Ishbel, this is a great start. I agree that you could work a little bit more on ellipses and choosing a view in perspective.

My only suggestion would be, next time, try to quiet that cast shadow down a bit so it doesn’t distract from the rest of the drawing. Try using gray Verithin instead of Dark Sepia at first, so…[Read more]
