nasturtiums

Trying a new set of colored pencils while playing games with perspective. The convention would have been to move the sailboat a little higher on the page. Instead, I let it align with the windowsill, as it did when I began drawing.

It looks so soft. This is from colored pencils? Did you wet it so that they'd blend so prettily?

Thanks. Yes, I used a waterbrush to move the pigment around and blend it some.

I love the framing (as I always do with your pictures) of this and like that the sailboat is where it is. But it is the purple and orange in the foreground that catch my eye. haven't visited enough lately. Enjoy seeing these latest - all lovely.
