I finished the colored pencil drawing of the water lily. This is a scanned in version and the colors are a bit off but you get the idea.
I really like the end result and I finally found a way to use colored pencils where the outcome was good. It takes a long time but the blending of the colors is the definite key. We went to Louise’s house again to make more leaves for our ski chair. We have a lot more to do and now I have 7 more leaves to stitch with a felt covering. Hopefully, the needle breakage will be less than the last set. Have a good weekend.
The results on the flower are beautiful! Very lovely detail and blending. Good luck with the leaves.
Thanks Marilyn! The leaves/chair are going to be a long term project for sure.
I feel as if I could reach out and touch the lily and feel it’s softness! The leaves are wonderful and the reflection is spot-on. Definitely a framing piece!
Thanks Lyn! It’s in my sketchbook now but perhaps I will frame it.
Wow, that is ace, Ruth!
Thanks Zed, I got those colored pencils to work finally.
That’s a stunner – I can only imagine how long it took to blend all those colours!
Thanks Kim, it was a 3 week project. Not that I worked on it all the time but it take some effort to get these results from colored pencils. Glad I learned the blending technique.
