Madagascar Periwinkle Sketch

This sketch of a Magagascar Periwinkle (Catharanthus) is the beginning steps of a painting for an on-line group studying color and other aspects of art.  This month the subject is botanicals.  I will take this rough sketch and trace it on to tracing paper then will transfer a clean outline of the plant to watercolor paper. 

The photo reference for this painting is from Wikipedia and information about the plant can be read here.
