The Sweet Smell of Lilacs by Maigan Lynn

The Sweet Smell of Lilacs
by Maigan Lynn

Prompt: The wonderful smell of Lilacs
prompted by: ElmaBree, during Sketch Fest #34 (March, 2013)

I've had Lilacs around me almost my entire life and it is one of my FAVORITE signs that spring is finally here! The flowers are such a pretty colour with all of their intricate little petals! I had wanted to colour this piece with coloured pencils but all the little tiny flowerlets on the Lilac ate up my hour. So, whoever purchases this inked piece, it will also come lightly coloured with coloured pencil in yellows, pinks, greens, and purples/voilets. I may also consider creating a painting with this piece as well so, in a sense, there will be two original coloured pieces.


Heather Mitchell says: I love her the Lilac looks so real I can practically smell it ~ Reply?

     Maigan Lynn replied to this: Thank you Heather! I love drawing/painting Lilacs but I always forget how long they take to put together! LOL!

Coriander Shea says: Oh this is so pretty! It's going to look excellent with color. :) ~ Reply?

     Maigan Lynn replied to this: I can't wait to colour it with both pencils and then make a painting of it. The pencils will give an idea of the colours but the paint always makes it come to life.
