The second drawing I tried - well actually this is the third attempt I made at drawing the irises. They are tricky customers, working out what goes were and what angle and proportion all the bits of petal are to one another. It was in fact done on the 11th, not the 10th as it says. I never have issues with what date it is!
I know it sounds like blowing my own trumpet, but I'm rather pleased with it. I like the way the darker B pencils work, when I did art at school years ago I remember sticking to the lighter, more tentative Bs. Will try to do more pencil drawing, at some point I'd like to get to grips with paint and colour, but one thing at a time.
