New Beginnings

New Beginnings - Hibiscus Buds,  8 x 10" graphite on clayboard

ready to frame 

For those who care to look back in the previous posts during August, you will see the creation of this drawing.   The reference picture was a little more complicated than this, with various leaves and stems going on underneath the buds.  So, it has been simplified.    

It was fun to do a drawing just for the sake of a drawing!  I haven't done that in awhile.  I was also trying the new (to me) surface of clayboard.  What a great surface to work on!  I highly recommend it. 
Next, I would like to try colored pencil on this surface.  But, that's another project!

wonderful! I am a huge fan of graphite drawings. Love the vein work on the leaves.

Beautiful is your work. Funny I ran across this as I just named a painting new beginnings.
