I'm a digital artist, but sometimes, if I'm in the mood, I pick up regular pencils
Today it occurred to me: if photographers consider b / w roses to be quite a good creative solution, then why not draw it in monochrome?
I don't think it will look worse ...
There is an idea, it's up to you to sit down and draw!)))
Sketch and stages (drawn from several of my own photos)
I chose a composition for a long time - I wanted to add a bud to the rose, but I did not immediately find a good place for it.
First I put shadows in dark sepia
Then I make a color transition with a light sepia
The lightest areas (glare, veins, petals in the light) - with chalk.
I paint over the rest of the flower with sanguine.
In some places, I slightly emphasize the shadows and outlines with a charcoal pencil.
