N is for Nosegay

nosegay 02122015

I love flowers, but I struggle with drawing them.  As you can see.  🙂 Admittedly, I only had a half hour to get this drawing finished.  I love the colors, but I don’t think flowers are something that comes easy to me.   I will have to try, try again before I’m happy with them, I think, but they’re worth it.

If anyone can suggest a book or a video that’s helped them render flowers and leaves, I’d love to hear about it.

Woo, I’m glad we’re within sniffing distance of the weekend.  I’m gonna celebrate Friday tomorrow by going back to eyes, my favorite subject!  Spread some joy around today, and I’ll see you Friday.

  1. I think this is a good start. Maybe the edges of the leaves should be more well-defined with the same density of color inside as the flowers themselves (more white showing) and I don’t know if you even need the stems. The shape without them is quite graceful. Flowers are hard for me right now, though I seem to have been better at them at one time. Just keep drawing them!

    1. Thanks. I try to go faster when I feel less confident. It seems to help. Even though that makes no sense. Maybe it causes less interference from the left brain? Also, my husband was waiting for me to watch a movie and so I was rushing more than normal, lol.

          1. Not really. I keep trying to skip ahead in the book to see how she talks about it. I think it has something to do with making a 2D image our of a 3D scene. But the book is structured so that you really need to go through the whole thing.

I'd love to hear from you! Constructive criticism is most appreciated. Thank you!
