Excellent drawing Mia.

Beautiful as ever

Thank you all very, very much for those lovely comments.

Beautifully drawn, with accents in all the right places. Love the contrast of the delicate petals against the textures of the woody stem. Stunning work, Mia!

Thank you so much Thalia and Seok. I appreciate.

Super sketch Mia, i like how you brought the leaf across the stem

Thank you very much, David.

Starting immediately in ink, I made this pen drawing of one of my favourite subjects: Fading roses. I used a waterproof, lightfast Unipin 0,5 for the outline and a Staedler 0,1 for the details and shadow lines. Hope you like it :) Mia
