The flower on the left has mostly colored pencils and pastels. Half-way through this piece, Elizabeth introduced me to chalks, and I love how easy it is to shade and to fix mistakes with chalks. The flower on the right is mostly color pencils for the basic colors and then chalks for shading. The background is all chalks. I also went over the flower on the left with some additional chalk-shading.
This is probably my favorite of all the flowers I've done so far. I like adding in the backgrounds. I think I'll be working with chalks for a while to come. It goes so much faster and makes the shading so much smoother.
