Monday Morning Pastel: Susan's Roses

"Susan's Roses"
12" x 14" Pastel


The traveler is back and I attended Monday drawing class last week. Friend Susan brought in some lovely roses and an interesting pitcher. Instructor Bob paired it with a lovely drape and good lighting. With just a few hints from the instructor and some work after at home, I was able to complete this one to my satisfaction. I find floral bouquets in pastel quite the challenge. How to suggest without doing every pedal? It's all about values and edges.

This is lovely--you met the challenge and more! But as I scroll back to other recent posts, I am really loving your collages, Mary; you have a special creative eye in this medium.
