Making Progress - Trillium in Ink and Colored Pencil





I am making a bit of progress on the trillium (Trillium grandiflorum). I have continued to layer the permanent green olive (#9201-167) over the darker deep cobalt green (#9201-158) layer. 




 

I will continue to layer until I get all three leaves colored. Then I will work on refining the shading, deepening shadows, lifting out highlights, etc. Stay tuned!  

What are you working on these days?

The trillium is coming along nicely! You have such a knack for fine detail. :)

I'm working on another beaded collar. I wasn't thrilled with it at first, but now it's headed in the right direction!

Gorgeous Carol. I enjoy trilliums too. I experimented years ago with computer painting and worked up trilliums. (I think it is in my Flickr art set). So I was tickled to see your trilliums.

Thanks, Sarah! I'm looking forward to seeing your next collar. Talk about detail!! :)

Thanks, Joan! How fun. I'll have to look up yours on Flickr. They are a beautiful wildflower, for sure. I have a second reference photo that I want to do in addition to this one. Fingers-crossed that I can keep plugging away!
