Swirling Shades of Blue and Other Updates

Apologies to you, my friends, for being woefully behind in updating the blog so that you can share the progress of my latest ENDURING ROOTS drawing with me!  I’ve posted several videos below in an effort to help you catch up if you’d like.

I’ve finalized the design for the Celtic cross and have combined it with the photos of the sunflowers I’ll be using in the is piece, titled “Adoration”.  After many hours of testing various colors and shades, I’ve selected the shades of blue that I’ll be using in the background (see photo below).

Currently, I’m in the process of sketching the sunflowers to scale.  It’s a massive undertaking as this drawing is the largest colored pencil piece I’ve ever made.  In fact, it’s so big that I have to work on it sideways because it’s too tall to work on right-side-up!

Check out the videos below to get a peek into the creation process and see the final composition sketch I’ll be working from as I create this piece.  The most current video is at the bottom.

Hope you enjoy them!

Blessings and Joy be to You!
