Drawing January: Snowdrops in colour

Hello! Another January drawing, again looking at snowdrops. This little group grow in the yard of our village church. What you see below are the stages of one drawing, Little Darlings. I wanted to use the transition effect to animate the stages a little. The most recent stage (stage 8) appears underneath. I’m nervous of this in some ways – often I see a stage when perhaps it would have been best to stop…Nevertheless, here is my drawing in its underclothes of watercolour up to its top dress in pastel:

    1. Thank you Jackie – wonderful to hear from you. I think that following a piece through stages is always interesting – It’s the first time I’ve done it really but I always enjoy seeing the progress of work by other artists. Definitely time to try it for myself at long last! Hope the weather will improve with you very soon!
