Melancholy Blue Rose by sweetmarly Melancholy Blue Rose by sweetmarly
There are days when you just want to clear your head from all that goes on in life....so turn off the TV and put on some music and turn off all the lights except the one you need so that you can see your work and just find something to draw.

That's why this is called the Melancholy Blue Rose.

My reference picture here... [link]

Fine texture sketchbook, white eraser, Q-tips for blending, HB pencil for line work....Prismacolor pencils Blue 901,903,904...Green 908,911,912...Brown 945, Yellow 942

I think that I prefer this version of the rose to the black and white one.

very beautiful. it does have a melancholy feel to it, i can sense it emanating from the dark ultramarine-ish blue and the laurel-green of the leaves, but yet i feel warmed as well.... it's a strange feeling to describe, but overall you did a great job!

Thank you. I'm happy that you like it. It's so much more striking in blue than some other normal colour. I just didn't feel like red or pink.

Well thank you...blue is such an unusual colour for a rose that it was fun to do. I have a black and white version of this same rose but it is no where near as beautiful as the colour version.
