Rosy Thoughts
by Erich Heidewald

Prompt: Wrapped in Roses
prompted by: Sarah Alden, during Sketch Fest #41 (September, 2013)

I managed to get some wonderful pictures of my Mom's rose bush yesterday and I plan on finishing this in color and at a bigger scale (when I figure out how to do so!) in colored pencil and pastel. 3.5 x 5 inches. Graphite on 60lb sketch paper.

     Erich Heidewald replied to this: Thank you so much!

mikka says: I quite like the color tests for the roses, and look forward to seeing how they turn out. ~ Reply?

     Erich Heidewald replied to this: Thank you! The rose is most extraordinary, starting out a tangerine orange and yellow, followed by a rosy peach and fading out to a white with pink specks.

Jenny Heidewald says: How did I miss this one? You ever get around to finishing this? The pastel/colored pencil coloring is really lovely. ~ Reply?

     Erich Heidewald replied to this: Thanks! The yellows really go fluorescent on screen. One of these days I'll get back to her. :)
