Colored pencils on white bristol board... 5x7 inches
I've been drawing quite a bit lately, and spending time using colored pencils to do some botanical drawings. I love flowers, and it seems, for me, it's easier to draw them than to paint them.
I had bought a bouquet of flowers just before Christmas from the grocery store. It had white mums, red carnations, a red rose, and this flower that I had never seen before... and it hadn't bloomed yet. Over the last few days more and more of the little star shaped flowers have been opening and I wondered what the name of it was. I finally looked it up, and it is called the Star of Bethlehem! Just right for a Christmas bouquet!
I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas!
