007-052 - A rose for Philluppus by sweetmarly 007-052 - A rose for Philluppus by sweetmarly
Week 7 (17 February 2013) of my 52 week drawing challenge.

:iconphilluppus: is one of my favorite photographers of flowers and his pictures of Roses are phenomenal. He gave me permission to draw one of his flowers and I thought that nothing would be more appropriate than drawing the rose of the very first print that I bought of his Pretty Pink series. I have bought four of his prints and you can see the original here...

9x12 fine textured scrapbook. Prisma coloured pencils in green, pinks and black (the sketch book is not smooth enough and leaves a textured surface when using a large amount of black).

Thanks...surprisingly roses are not even my favorite flower but they are for me the easiest to draw. My favorite flower is the carnation....white with red tips. It's beautiful but harder for me to draw.

Glad that you like it.

I like to think that those two flowers of yours defined my drawing style. They were so much fun to do.

Certainly, I'd like that. Roses, Marigolds what ever flower you think will be nice. A close-up like the other two and clear so that I don't miss out on the details.
