the rose

This is the Rose, an illustration for Colored Pencil Solution Book (page 106) - aaah it does my heart good to see it again. I still appreciate the precision, detail and patience it took. If any of my colored pencil students still visit this blog, you will remember my mantra, 'sharp point, light touch'!

One would imagine that a progression drawing for a book would be done as step 1, take a photo, add more color, call it step 2, take a photo, etc. I think I imagined something would happen to the photos so all my illustrations for the book are done with each step as a separate hard-copy drawing. I'm going to post this for purchase on my Daily Paintworks Gallery.
