Raspberry sprig - finished!

I have finally finished this illustration of a raspberry sprig. This was done from a clipping taken last month, so there were just some blossoms on it, but no berries yet. I layered three different greens on the leaves and just added a bit of ivory over the pen work of the blossoms themselves since they are white/ivory in color.

Raspberry sprig - colored pencil progress

Continuing the colored pencil. I've done a light shading on all of the large leaves and have begun adding some layers of darker green and then light green on top of that to the leaves on the lower right. I think it's coming along nicely. I'll continue that process with the other leaves, darkening where needed and layering the lighter green on top to brighten and burnish.

Raspberry sprig - starting colored pencil

So I have started adding color to this ink drawing of the raspberry sprig. I am trying to keep a light hand right now so I don't overwork it. I plan to continue adding shading and color to hopefully give the leaves some depth and form. Stay tuned for more updates!

Raspberry sprig - pen and ink

This is the raspberry plant in pen and ink. I deliberately just did a line drawing, trying to emphasize heavier lines/lighter lines to show a bit of depth.

I will be using this as a base for my colored pencil rendering, so it will be interesting to see how this turns out!
