roses by omagrandmother roses by omagrandmother
guess you all have been wondering why I've not been submitting too much lately.

I was working on this piece as a Christmas gift.

it is done in colored pencil and I'm at the nearly done ready to frame stage. Just a few crisping of the edges of some leaves and final check over.

wheeew I'm glad that one is finished.

my camera is wonky these colors are much more vibrant and the paper is really snow white. I didn't even smudge. just have to love transfer paper for keeping those grubby finger prints at bay.

not sure what the shiny is that shows up on the buds most likely just flash from the camera reflection. It isn't actually shiny like that.

I like flowers but as art for the wall I tend to like a bit more edgy/abstract. This is for my daughters home. She wanted flowers so Roses it is. It will be a Christmas gift.

ciao thanks for leaving a comment.

Lovely image & very well done. Photographing a work never works well for me either.

I can see some of the pencil lines & it would be awesome in the flesh.

Someone is going to be very pleased to get this. I most certainly would be :)

Thanks Barbieq25 I'm so glad its done. colored pencil takes forever to do all those individual little lines. but it does look nice when finished.

Painting would be quicker, but when you are tucked up in bed sick pencils are not so messy. LOL!

I am so sorry to hear you've been sick. Hope you're on the mend now.

I have done a couple of pencils & yes they are time consuming but well worth the effort.

thanks you barbieq25. Feel good one day bad the next. Just one of those things that down time resting takes care of. My pencils are a God send when I'm on doctor ordered bed rest.

thanks you Leif. its a releif to finally finish this one. I tend to like single flowers if I do flowers. All those pink colors in petals was starting to get tedious.

Yes, sometimes it is a balance between making a loot of details, and figuring out when to finish what you are doing.
