EDM Challenge #76



I joined a wonderful Yahoo group called Everyday Matters to get me jump started in doing regular sketching - it's a great group and the art produced by the members very inspiring. There are weekly assignments to complete and this is my posting of flowers. It's not elaborate - at 104 degrees outside, I had to get it done quickly this morning before the heat of the day hit.

I really like this one. Pen and ink with watercolors works so well, this is delicate and happy. It's a nice page spread as well. Thanks for sharing it with us.
