EDM challenge no. 97 was to sketch a present you have received and explain why it is special and I couldn't have chosen a better time to tackle this challenge.
Over the weekend my Mum appeared at my studio door with a handful of beautiful flowers from her garden, her very first crop of sweet peas this year mixed with a few lavender sprigs and she had picked them just for me.
Such a delicate little bunch of colour required an equally beautiful water container and I immediately reached for the tiny, blue, frosted vase my friend Joannie gifted me last year. The two look fantastic together and sit on the small table in my studio tempting me to capture them on paper...Tonight I gave into temptation and made a quick sketch using pen and inktense pencils.
Below is the dry version, before adding water.
