Tulips

What I've been working on lately:



Done from a photo I took at the Muttart Conservatory a couple years ago. Pencil crayon on dark green paper, 5x7 inches.

I think it turned out well, except for the blotches in the background. The paper wasn't all that great, and by the time I'd decided that I wanted them toned down there was too much wax piled on. I couldn't really lift much of the colour off, and I couldn't cover it up with the indigo blue, so I had to live with it.

I might try toning the bottom-left leaves down a bit before I hang it up.
