Tulips on Pastelbord

I started working on a small drawing on gray 9x12 " Ampersand Pastelbord. I love the gray toned Pastelbord as a background, it is a cool almost blue-gray neutral in which warm colors on the surface contrast so well with. The reference photo is of three tulips lying on a silver dish, as for now all you can see are the tulips and some of the reflections.

I'm home from Florida and glad to be back although I am really going to miss the beautiful weather, we have snow predicted this afternoon. One good thing about New England weather is that I get more work accomplished when it is cold, rainy or snowy. In Florida, it is difficult to keep myself inside drawing when it is so beautiful outside. I missed my busy life also as well as my boys, my friends and colleagues. My husband says give me a week or so and I will be complaining again ......

A lovely idea for a piece, looking forward to seeing the silver dish underneath the tulips. I love winter for the extra time I have in the studio. Gardening fever will hit soon enough! :-)
