Pablo Picasso once said: “As a child everybody is an artist. The difficulty lies in staying an artist when you are grown-up”.
Well I tried my very best! In the last 3 weeks I took some 1-3 hours per day to draw one of my macro photos showing the inside of a peony with quite a lot of entwined petals. I used dark grey-blue paper and chalk pencils. I show you the various stages from the beginning and the photo in comparison. Yesterday I put the drawing into a frame with a black passe-partout. I decided to let 2 petals run out a little of the picture as I did in my last drawing of a poppy, which is a nice little detail.
