Continuing today with drawing in charcoal, I wanted to use it to add depth to my work. I began this sketch by chalking in the negative space and then the flowers. It had some depth at this point but was dull. So I used watercolor and watercolor pencil to add color and then finally went back with a Sharpie marker to darken portions of the sketch in order to emphasize the vertical lines of the flower stems. I think I lost depth when I used the Sharpie, but it was a tradeoff between the lines and depth.
This is a charcoal, watercolor and marker sketch on watercolor paper.
