Although i usually draw animals, occasionally i try something else, and for this piece i decided to draw a rose. Like most of my artwork this is in coloured pencil, and i did it just over a year ago. It was really good to look so closely at all the details of the flower and see what a rose really looks like, rather than what we tend to think one looks like. I also loved the colours i used for this piece as they are all so bright and colourful, it makes a change from the browns and greys of animals.

    Oh, one of my favourite flowers! I like roses. That one is pretty. I have stitched some roses too.
