Drawing Challenge Day 7, Flowers

Just like we change with every moment and will never be the same as we were the minute before, these flowers were changing while I was drawing them. The movement of the light, the breeze and the water they were given were contributors to the changes with every passing moment. Today, my goal was to try and simplify my subject and I don’t think I accomplished that. This drawing is just as complicated as my previous drawings in this series. I would like to try to create the idea of the flowers without so many strokes.

These are to be exercises to work on my skills. The ability to look closely at something, to edit what needs to be put in and what can be left out, the amount of strokes that are necessary to achieve a comprehensive drawing.

In my critique of this drawing, it is lacking depth and simplicity. Possibly one single bloom would accomplish this better. Tomorrow is another drawing just like we get another minute.
