Three members continued with their pansy/viola pictures after the recent coloured pencil botanical workshop with Amber Halsall.
Dot’s picture shows her deep magenta pansies and the tumble of leaves around them. Isn’t it amazing to see all the many different colours Dot saw in the leaves?
Steve’s deep purple and yellow pansies look dramatic against the leaves. The leaves look real with the shadows and highlights carefully placed, making the image look 3D.
Tracy found the green leaves a bit challenging as her green coloured pencils were a bit bright and unnatural. She enjoyed creating the colours of the different violas, especially the magenta and orange ones, which were really unusual.
It’s been interesting to see the finished images after we didn’t manage to complete them at the workshop. Well done all!
