Sketching Mums After Work

My family always looks out for me. One day recently, I came home from work and I found these flowers on the kitchen table with this note:

"Hi Carolyn,

I thought you would like these flowers to draw. They had them at the office.

Love, Dad.
PS. Put them in water."

I did sketch them in colored pencil, trying to be not as detailed as I usually am. The blue background ended up taking me the longest! Here is an example of a recent piece that I did that was very detailed. It is of a nature subject, although it was definitely not a sketch.


  1. These are so wonderfully done -- and what a terrific gesture! I love the depth of your petals --- super!

  2. Wow, Carolyn--what a wonderful present, and I love what you did with it!
