Moving along with the tulips
My photo is a little fuzzy and a bit lighter than the original drawing. I'm just about finished with the cloth and going to start the background. I'm going to leave the background simple so as not to detract from the tulips. I started on the left side with a warm gray but don't think its what I'm looking for so I'll keep experimenting. The UArt paper is very textured and can be difficult to lay down a nice layer of pencil. I'm finishing with the Polychromos, the leads are harder and fill in the grooves nicely.
