Orange Tulips


This was done for my drawing in colour course. The assignment was to draw flowers and relate it to its surroundings. I really enjoyed this, coloured pencils are lovely and versatile and easier to control than marker pens. This also happens to coincide nicely with the Illustration Friday theme of Spring! If you want to see how this picture unfolded, see the art recipe below. Drawn on A2 sized sugar paper in coloured pencils. 2.4.06 Posted by Picasa

Tammy, I don't actually hate Spring. :-) The drawing you are referring to is several years old and it was during a rough time, so I was just letting some feelings out. But I once again love Spring. Not as much as Fall but almost!
