Fading Light

This latest drawing was based on one of my favourite photographs. The image was taken at a local park, with the poppy and foliage beautifully backlit by the fading sunshine. It is the most challenging piece that I have worked on in coloured pencil and took a long time to complete. The difficult areas were trying to capture the different focal points, the contrast between light and shade, and especially drawing all those tiny hairs on the stems and buds!
