Tulips in charcoal and coloured pencil, sketch

Tulips in the deep shade under a tree, with a little light filtering through the fence, charcoal and coloured pencil sketch, A4

I'm up to my eyes in paperwork and stuff - this is just to prove I am doing a little drawing.

It started life as a simple charcoal sketch but I couldn't resist adding a touch of colour.

I think the combination of charcoal and coloured pencil work really well - like this a lot.

great work, when it comes to the transition from just a charcoal sketch to a colour sketch I fail badly.
Beautiful, the light on your leading lady makes me think of old hollywood movies.

I agree this combo really captures the essence of the flower. Hope the paperwork is dwindling quickly.

I love this, with the black -- almost makes it seems like some exotic species of night-blooming tulip. (and scented, too, I hope)

Well, your little touch of color turned out magnificently. This has so much life and character!
