Bouquet of Flowers and Child by 


The flowers in the bouquet were originally planted from seed. Once reaching their full season the flowers were picked and dried for several months and then arranged as a composition. The child was my daughter who posed for me. There was tremendous satisfaction derived from the start to finished project. The pencils were finally layered up to seven times and the work took approximately 40 hours to complete. There is No. 2 in a series of 5 pictures done in this style. The pencils were Faber Castel and the paper was Bainbridge 2000 Illustration Board.
The following description of this board can be found at :

    Wow Jann…this is so beautifully delicate…lovely work

  • Thanks for the lovely compliment. I have a great love for both flowers and all children. I had only been on Vancouver Island for a few years and I was in such awe of the beauty here that I couldn’t help but do something artistic.
