To draw or not to draw

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.

  1. Lovely work! I like this very much. I had never thought of using blue paper rather than white, and the idea of letting the petals ‘spill’ over the border is inspiring!

    • Thanks, your compliment is appreciated. It depends on the colors you use. For my chalk pencils (and colored pencils) blue paper is suitable. I also like to draw on wrapping paper. White paper is so cold and discourages me. Regards Mitza

  2. Wow.. you are very talented! Great drawing Mitza!! And i guess with a good drawing, it adds a lot to the scene you’re displaying.. and with this flower i think the drawing might be better than the actual picture.. 🙂
    Well, better is a comparison unnecessary in this case! Just an amazing piece of art 😀


  3. I had to share this on my facebook. My timeline is choked with political opinions and snippets of little things from friends. I decided to see if I could elevate the noise to a more pure subject, your art. I hope you don’t mind. – Daniel

    • I hope your friends enjoy this painting on facebook and I hope I can give a little repose to you by my art, Daniel. I’m glad you like my blog. Regards Mitza
