Charlotte's Rose

Just a quick little post to show you the drawing I finished whilst taking some quiet time. This rose was gifted to my Son and Daughter-in-law by a family member to celebrate my eldest Granddaughters birth. It just blooms it's little leaves off and when my son sent me a photo I knew I really wanted to draw it.
I did have a little trouble trying to get the colour right with my pencils but had to settle for this in the end.
This is the drawing and photo side by side.
So it's not too bad. Even though it was challenging I really enjoyed it. The best bit is that my Son and DIL love it. I am so blessed to have children that are so supportive of what their crazy Mother does!
My next project is a bit different from what I usually do and I am just trying to work out some composition for it.
I think a bit of stitching is in order while I have a little think.
Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx
