Tulip Sketch

I love the look of tulips in their simplicity and their graceful flow.  Sketched with an "H" graphite pencil overlaid with ink.  I will look at the tulips again as I think their needs to be more of a large, medium, small size gradation with the larger tulip being the focal point.  Painting the tulip leaves will be excellent practice too in the use of greens and gradation of values as well as warm/cool tones - lost/found edges.  Should be fun.

Ann, this should be fun and beautiful. I also love tulips: they are such a symbol of spring and all their colors are delightful. I like your sketch and am looking forward to progress pictures.
