Past and Future - Stage 2


I like simple sketches like this. To demonstrate an item with few lines and no colour is a great skill.

This will be interesting to follow Mia, a stage by stage account of its death and birth. Lovely.

Such a good drawing Mia!

Thank you very much Stevan, Fiona, Paul, Louise and Gudrun for having a look at my work and posting such nice comments. Because the rose is on my table, I can follow the 'decline' and 'progression' of both. I hope the bud will be open before the old one has gone completely.

Excellent sketch and love the way you are following it. Just a suggestion, may be couple of broken petals at the bottom will complete the picture.

Thank you very much for your positive comment, Romila.

The withered rose in the glass on my kitchen table lost a few leaves and the rosebud is opening a bit, so this is how it looks for the moment. Again a sketch immediately in ink with my Artpen filled with Quink Ink. Size A4. All comments very welcome :) Mia
