The problem that I keep facing with graphite is the in-ability to achieve subtle dark values and I seem to always go a bit lighter than is correct. I wanted to capture the whiteness of the underside of these pedals but unfortunately I didn’t make the rest of the flower dark enough to capture it.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
