Sketch #3


Graphite on Hot Pressed Watercolor Paper
This is an illustration for another poem. It's a four liner describing the people who make us happy as gardeners of our lives. I wanted to add humanistic elements into the flowers to give the feeling of external emotion. In addition I have added dancing shadows intermingled with the strands of her hair. The final will be finished in black and white for the publisher.
