Faded Rose


Beautifully observed as always Mia.

I agree, lots of character in this faded rose ink drawing

A really delicate and detailed illustration Mia.

Have said it before Mia - Simple, delicate and very very good.

Wonderful Mia.

Nice drawing Mia .

A little beauty Mia.

A lovely illustration, Mia, you'd see plenty of these in my garden! But I find it a bit sad, a sign that summer is going.

Beautifully drawn, Mia!

Wow, so many positive and encouraging comments. Thank you all so very much!

Thank you very much, Stevan.

Really caught my eye Mia. Beautiful

Thank you so much, Gudrun and Terry. Much appreciated.

A lovely piece, Mia. I like how you balanced the large shapes with the detail, so exquisitely observed and rendered.

Thank you very much, Seok. I always appreciate your comments.

Hang on Studio Wall

Starting immediately in ink, I used a Unipin 0,5 for the shape and a Staedler 0,1 pen for the detail lines. I love to draw faded flowers, they have so much character (in my opinion). Size A4. All comments are very welcome :) Mia
