Drawing on a coloured ground

I have been very busy with  a local campaign, therefore time for drawing has been limited.

 I did not complete an exercise from last week's class, on identifying tone in a painted portrait and felt a bit despondent about that.  Thank goodness I was more successful with these week's efforts, drawing a vase of flowers using charcoal and chalk in to a coloured ground.

I quite like this as it looks rather Victorian and gothic, which I think is due to the purple ground.


  1. Oh that's fab, love the colours.

  2. Absolutely beautiful! I particularly love the spikey stems on the LHS. Clearly the rest from drawing has seen you come back even better!

  3. Purple "ground" . BACKground? Or paving slab ground? Either way it's fab?


Thanks for your comment. I love to read them, but can't always respond.
