Daily Sketch #8: Magnolia flower meal plan

IMG_2624IMG_0197

Always fun to try and sketch something white using black graphite. This white magnolia flower is from my backyard last summer. The bees were having a field day. I decided to add them into the sketch last minute and I’m glad they did. I just wanted to see how hard it would be to include a few bees, but they ended up adding improved depth to the sketch. After sketching this flower I’ve decided to add it to my painting lineup, probably using a painting knife to add cool texture.

The darker shading was done using a 2B with light pressure. Everything else is an HB.
