This week in colored pencil class we took photos with contrast between dark and light and tried to develop our darks and lights by layering colors. The results are quite dramatic and more beautiful than trying to achieve contrast with one color for darks and one color for lights. This was my attempt. I used reds and greens for my darks, pink, light blue and lilac for petals and green, indigo, dark green, 2 yellows, and orange for the center.


  1. Incredibly fresh!

  3. I feel I could reach down and pick it!
