Peony Princess Sketch

Here’s a look at the line art for my Peony Princess before adding color. I worked with a number of graphite pencils along with white charcoal to build up some shadows and highlights. I also worked on a piece of tan-colored paper. I’m really not sure what kind of paper it is, but I liked that it already had tone to it. That way, I could actually draw in white for the highlights – which was really fun. Henry and I are also trying out a new camera for this photo. I’m really liking the depth of focus the it can create. Cheers!
