Quick Flower Sketches – Part 2

I hope you enjoyed my quick flower sketches from yesterday!

Today, I sketched an arrangement of “Peonies and Orchids” in charcoal:

I then painted it with my fingers and acrylic paint:

I thought it needed a little something more, so I added a few color pencils for definition:

It has an oriental feel to me.  What do you think?!  I’d love to hear from you!

Happy Painting!  🙂

  6. It does feel a bit Asian, possibly because of the cherry-blossom look of the orchids? 🙂 I think it looks great with or without the colored pencil definition.
