Weird Purple Flowers

Oh you don't want to know how busy I've been lately, so I won't bore you. I'll just say I brought my studio home so I can sneak in more work here and there.

Here's the newest, some strange purple flowers from Lina's house. I don't know what they are. :-)

The framing on this one will be difficult to get the illusion right so I will be taking it to the framer instead of doing it myself. I have a couple of others I need to frame too.

Cherry Pop!

Coloured Pencil on Pastelbord
Thanks Gayle for the name idea!
There is some distortion as usual from my wide angle lens, which is always really noticeable with the box ones.

I used my usual recipe for Pastelbord. I worked up 90% of the image using Derwent Coloursofts which cover the surface faster than other pencils and then, like icing on a cake, I finished the last 10% with Caran D'Ache Luminance pencils. Yum. That frosting is good. The Luminance pencils help me brighten the colors of the Coloursofts, blend a bit more, and basically burnish the surface.
