Some months ago I published a gallery with various kinds of poppies. Now I had time to draw one of the fotos, too. I usually use dark blue paper because I dislike white paper. It gives a very special mood to the colors I use (these are chalk pencils). I put the drawing into a frame with a black passe-partout. I decided to let the petals run out a little of the picture and cut the passe-partout accordingly. I think it’s quite a good idea. I show you the foto in comparison to my drawing, too and the pencils so that you can follow the completion of my drawing.
