A cup of colour by MLiMLiMLi A cup of colour by MLiMLiMLi
Add some colour to the black and white world.

For :icondraw-along:s February reference. Original photo [link] by :iconmywonderlandasylum:

My first thought when I saw the photo was that I thought it would look nice if you painted the flowers in color and painted the rest black and white. So before I had time to come up with some other crazy idea that I got stuck to I started to draw it.
It was my first try in using this grid thing, and I kinda like it. It was a lot easier to get the right proportions and I'm sure I'm gonna use it again.

And well what looks like orange here is kinda yellow in reality, and the stuff that looks red is in real orange. My scanner is a bit weird.

The piece is 19x19 cm and done with mechanical pencil 0,5 (HB), pencils 2H, HB, B, 2B, 4B, 6B, erasers, cotton pad for some blending and some of these cheep color pencils.

Thank you for looking! :heart::tighthug:

I've been meaning to try the grid method for a while... but it looks so much harder than just drawing from a photo. Did you find it better to use the grid? If so, how?
P.S. Love the drawing!!

It is A LOT easier to use the grid methode than to just draw of a photo, the porportions is much easier to get right. It takes some time to draw the grid, but if you want to get the proportions right is it worth it. :D With the grid is everything devided into smaller parts so you just have you get the right porortions within that smaller part, not see where everything has to be with your eyes. At least that is how I think of it and it's a very usefull methode :D

And thank you!:hug::squee:

Very well done details! I've always had a thing for soft pencil work. Pencils are my preferred medium and this is quite lovely.

It's so optimistic :) . But maybe I would darken the reflections on hair, because it attires to much attention. In my opinion, I don't know if you would agree with me ;) .

Well thank you! I really appreciate that you give me some critique, because I always want to improve my drawing skills :hug: Now that I look at it again I see what you mean. The main focus should be the flowers, and the reflections of the hair takes away a bit of the effect. I will keep that in mind next time! :)
