Continuing to explore the the flower shapes begun in my previous drawing I had expected there to be more of a lean towards blue tones, but the reds crept back in again, but not to the extent of the previous drawing (see here). Once again, the forms were suggested by a flowering plant I found in parkland near the ocean, but the drawing took over once I began.
I’m not entirely convinced this is finished – there may be more marks to come which will connect the two elements in this drawing more closely. There is more going on in the previous version, so maybe this one needs to keep up!
The base drawing was made in Liquid Pencil, then the drawing developed with Caran d’Ache Luminance pencils, using yupo synthetic paper as the support. Below is a picture of the two drawings side-by-side, followed by some detail images at various stages of the development of the drawing.
