Spring fling

It’s a busy time of year now that the garden beacons. And with so much in bloom, it is the flowers that have caught my eye. 

I tried Wil Freeborn’s Lesson #13 on strong contrast for a portrait of a peony. Producing an even overall wash is something that requires technique that I need to work on. Not sure I like the pink on dark background. Once my white peonies bloom I will try the lesson again.

In the meantime, since I wasn’t crazy about the dark background, I did another sketch using a bright spring yellow-green background, which is what I see all around me these days.
