I listened to quite a lot of CDs during the making of this psychedelic picture :-)
I used coloured pencils, fineliners and a black Sharpie pen.

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

Thanks Walt – I spent ages on this one – it’s a great excuse to be listening to my CD collection :-)
beside a lovely flower design Dave I see a shape of a CD bursting with colour and can hear music…wonderful pencil and pen work..
Just a few minutes ago I was asking Lynda Robinson how you were keeping, so it’s lovely to hear from you. We really must have a catch-up chat when you have time. Thanks for your comment – much appreciated.
Oh yes – as for CDs … maybe my subconscious mind was thinking of CDs as I have been listening to LOTS of music while drawing this – everything from Pink Floyd to Lena Horne :-)
This must have been a real time consumer Dave! What a great result. It looks like a daisy from the sixties! I can imagine what sort of music inspired this. AND……What a small and coincidental world it is!!! I see you have a comment from Linda with an ‘i’!!!!
Thanks Lynda. Psychedelia must have inflitrated my subconscious mind I guess :-) Yes – nice to hear from Linda again.
This is outstanding Dave. I love the colors and patterns in this.
Excellent, reminds me of a sunflower
Thanks Byron. It was based on a photo of a dahlia, but after I stylised it, it resembled a sunflower :-) Most of my artwork is based on things and then deliberately altered a lot.
…well, i love how you alter objects.the rich colors are marvelous.
Thanks ever so; I love it when someone appreciates my efforts. I am teaching myself about blending coloured pencils together to create richer colours than the actual single pencils produce.
Love it !! The design really pops x
Thanks very much Anita.
Very nice DAve. Always known colours and shapes are strong elements in your work; but I also love how you added shading in various parts to suggest some depths; how the elements of this image are layered – and it is quite neat; I mean usually we may conceive a flower over the background – simple as that – but the way you drew those green squiggles that continue from one petal to the other – the petals are like a window frame.
Many thanks for your observant comment Mui-Ling.
if i saw a flower like this, i would have to pick it… what a great story your artwork tells…. LOVE IT!!
Thanks Barb :-)
Whoa! I feel like I’m going on an acid trip David! Love!!! : )
Glad you like it – I enjoyed doing this one.
