Cala Lily Red/Yellow with Sunlight from side

To watch some of you cover a subject that Matt covers in his lessons is truly a joy. I thought I would give a photo of this lily a try with pastels and colored pencils. The reference photo was great because it showed so much contrast. I hope you like this. Jack

Pretty @Cojax73 ! Did you draw on black paper or fill it with pastel/pencil? I love the light hitting it, it really does create some nice contrast! Jesus loves you!!!

Yes, it was done on black Strathmore paper.
Appreciate your thoughts!

Great job, Jack. I love the overall 3-d feel and the transparent feel of the orange part and light yellow part. The whitish lining of the outline of the flower gives very realistic impressions and I really appreciate the beautiful gradation of the green. I may sound very picky, but I especially admire the subtle dirtiness of the flower. Without it, this piece might look a drawing of an artificial flower. :smiley:

Hello Jack!
I love the way this flower pops. It has a 3-d quality to it and I love the intensity of the colors against the black background.
Thanks for sharing your art.
Patricia.

This is incredible! How do you use the colored pencil and pastel together?
