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.

This is beautiful! Your ink drawing and cp work so well, brilliantly done!
Thanks for your comment on my blog. The class I am taking is from Cathy Johnson and her web site is here

It is online and I would highly recommend her classes - this one has been challenging and a lot of fun.

Thanks, Teresa! Yes, something crisp about the pen and colored pencil together that appeals to me.

And thanks, Ann! I appreciate the kind comments and info on the course from Cathy Johnson. I'll have to take a look.

Carol, that is a beautiful illustration! The values and highlighting on the leaves and stem gives the painting a nice sense of dimension. The three different greens sure work together well! I'm going to spend a lot of time looking at this one!

Thank you very much, Frankye! I'm so glad you are enjoying it. I think it looks better to me now that I've been away from it for a few days :)

I really love your sprig Carol! I haven't been on the internet much lately so I was glad to see your progress. You are developing a great style - very nice work!

Milly - thanks so much!

Diann - thank you! I appreciate it. I was just looking at your site earlier today and wondering if you were going to update soon. :) I'll make a comment on your blog for your recent post.
