A rose is a Coneflower

My “homework” for an online class.  The assignment was on shading, and a rose was suggested, as well as given as an example to copy.  I chose not to do what everyone else was doing.  Crayon on fabric.

    Love the coneflower Gayle. I’m not the teacher, but your shading looks good to me. That is one thing I always struggle with.

    I know I’m supposed to comment about the “rose” … but then most of us are NOT surprised that your “rose” looks like a coneflower.

    I NEED to comment – again – about “Granny Goes to the Fair” …… oh Lordy ….. I keep going back and looking and looking …. and giggling. Is she going into your fair? She will certainly rival the goat b*lls you so love to look at!

    actually Sammi, it’s sheep nuts that are the main attraction. lol

    Gayle, love your coneflower! I love the perspective that you have achieved, the colors you have used and of course that you have chosen to not follow the instructions literally. I’m not surprised in the least at the last one, and I am in awe of the artistic journey that you are on.
