Drawing Lilies

Thanks to Sharon and Mora over at Painting Friends, we have a section called "Drawing Corner"

This month they explained negative shapes, gave us many examples and provided reference pics for us to practise on.

I thought you'd like to see my practise pieces.

First, the negative spaces




then lightly drawing in the flower



and finally - the finished drawing.
I will be painting this :)




oh and if you have never seen Sharon's blog, you're in for a treat - HERE
and Nora's blog - just as fabulous - HERE

  1. I think this is a great exercice, Pat! I did a lot of this when I was learning how to draw using the rigth side of the brain. Your finished work is very good, I think it will be a wonderful painting. xx

  10. Thanks for the link, Pat. I'll look that up. My comment was lost due to Blogger issues but I think what I said was: you can be very positive about your negative drawing skills!
