Charcoal Drawing #3 – Sunflower & Lily

Posted by | March 10, 2012 | 0 Comments

Sunflower is one of my favorite flowers. I like their vibrant colors and spirit. I plant sunflower in my gardens. They grow so easily and can be up to more than two meters high.


It’s my first time to draw sunflower. I like the colors and composition; but the shading is always the most difficult part.

I also drew a white lily which I like a lot. It looks like I am pretty good at capturing those flowers with a simpler shade.

Maple Trees – Pastel Drawing #1

Posted by | February 25, 2012 | 0 Comments

This is a drawing from a postcard photo in Pastel. It’s my first time using pastel. Pastel drawing looks wet and oily. Those maple trees looks windy since my pastel strokes are all in one direction.
