Carnation Flower: Update


Another update – I’m adding the red (crimson red) to the flower now. I’ll have to go back and forth with the colors to keep the values where I want them. After looking at the grey value on this, I want to push the darks more. (That’s something I tend to be timid about. I can put them in for my portraits, but not when I switch to colored pencils!)

I’m a little frustrated because my favorite pencil sharpener is at the gallery, so I’m working with a manual and a battery powered pencil sharpener. I guess I sound pretty silly – my husband thinks I have a pencil sharpener fetish. If he could read the art forum posts on supplies, his eyes would glaze over…

For now, I’m stopping here since it’s 3:15 am. I’m going to sleep…maybe.

(Oh yeah – better images, right? I ended up scanning it. Forget the camera!)
