Flowers aren’t usually my first choice for what to draw or paint, but my teacher last year pretty much gave you an A if you drew flowers or butterflies.  You gotta do what you gotta do right? So almost all of my pieces of art that I turned in were flowers. Guess what? I got an A+ in the class. This is a bouquet or flowers in pastels.  It was the first time I had actually used that expensive pastel paper so it was definitely a learning experience.


Black and White on Purple

This is another charcoal drawing of some pretty flowers.  But this isn’t just some flowers.  I only used black and white charcoal on this piece.  The paper was a light purple shade and I colored the background to work with the negative space.  I really like how it turned out.  A lot of people don’t realize the paper wasn’t black.
