Hollyhocks / 3


Good one Mia

I think it's another winner Mia, they are lovely flowers to paint 😘

This is stunning, hollyhocks are really beautiful flowers

Another nice pen and ink with color Mia, you know I like your work and this is another of your favorite flowers, if I may the only comment I would make is that the stem and leaf colors could do with a little more contrast, but that is for my eyes, still a nice work.

Thank you all very much for your positive comments. Yes, Malcolm, you are right but I was afraid to overdo it and I also see that the ink lines are much heavier on the screen than they are on the original work.

Hang on Studio Wall

I just can't stop drawing and painting this lovely flowers. I am fascinated by the colours and shapes. This is a pen and Inktense watercolour pencils but without a wash. I started the drawing immediately in ink, no pencil first so I had to stay very concentrated on the shapes and composition. Size A4. What do you think? All comments are very welcome :) Mia
