Q&A with dandmorch9628456

Cynthia Knox asked:
Dandmorch, this is truly awesome!! Each and every petal has been so beautifully rendered, and you have perfectly grasped the concepts of shading, contrast, highlights, blending and burnishing. Lovely petal detail and congrats on that rich black background without getting any black smudges on your flowers!
dandmorch9628456 answered:
Thank you for these positive comments Cynthia. I loved this project. It was very helpful and has introduced me to some new techniques which has rekindled my love of coloured pencil painting. I am now going to sort through some of my botanical photographs to try one of my own.
