I like the 3D quality of this pastel drawing Helen. Lovely
Lovely image Helen. I really like the painterly effect produced by the soft pastels. Difficult to get with another medium.
This works really well. As Thea says the background is a great contrast with the flower. But I think it's the dark green tone that pushes the flower forward adding depth to this image.
Why did you choose the greeny-grey paper? Was it to contrast or blend in with your flower?
Very 3D,Helen the lemony green behind the flower helps that effect.Lovely!
