Nevada Rose continued...

Found out today that this is called Nevada Rose. Have been working with acrylic inks, non permanent pen and watercolour pencils to study the subject further. Here are my efforts. I like working with acrylic ink and drawing with the pipette, mostly because I haven't got any other suitable implement apart from a brush. But I like the variety of thicknesses of marks you get with it. Tried some water droplets as one of the photos I was working from had some on the flowers and stalks. Now I have traced the design from my freehand tonal drawing on to watercolour paper and am looking forward to having a go.
