Colored Pencil Floral Still Life

Here are some photos I snapped of floral a piece I am working on now.

I found some time between my new presidential duties with Ann Arbor Women Artists and teaching a workshop, to draw for enjoyment. I was using the technique of layering lighter colors over darker colors, and blending them in using a smooth overlapping oval stroke.   Rendering the distortion of the stems viewed through the water and glass, and the beautiful shapes and colors of the flowers make this an enjoyable project.

It's gorgeous! Thank you for sharing the technique too. I'm always intrigued by the way others apply their colors. This is a stunning piece, Barbara!
