rose study 3

Some progress:

I’m liking it ever so much better with some high-contrast background added.  It gives me a better idea how dark I can go with the flowers; I’ve left some of the petals blank until the background is a bit further along.

I’m also considering drawing until what’s on the paper makes a pleasing-to-the-eye piece of art: more of a study than an edge-to-edge detailed rendering.  Personally, I very much enjoy drawings that allow the viewer’s eye to “fill in” blank or loosely rendered areas, while focusing in on a specific… umm… focal point. 😉

However, I may have already passed the point of no return on that idea for this piece.  We’ll see.
