Hi there, how are you?
This week I have been playing with my mother’s day gifts. I had flowers and chocolates. Sad to say the chocolates didn’t last long but the flowers are still going strong.
I took a few photos and then settled down to draw some of the flowers.
There are roses, gerberas chrysanthemums, and that’s where my knowledge of flowers ends I’m afraid. I don’t know the name of the flowers I drew; they are very pretty with little sprays with three or four flower heads on. You can see them above dotted around the bouquet.
I have to admit I do like flowers, I get to enjoy them as they sit in their vase plus I can draw them too, two gifts in one!
I know it doesn’t look like it but the colours in my sketch book are much closer to the real flowers, the scanner just doesn’t like pinks and purples.
The other flowers are a little more difficult to draw, gerberas aren’t too bad but chrysanthemums and roses still elude me, (so many petals) I just put my determined face on and keep plugging away at it. There is still quite a bit of life left in them.
Thanks for stopping by today. Till next time, have fun x
