#30 - Another rose bud

I forgot to post the one I drew on Mother's Day, of course in their honor, I drew another rose bud, but this time slightly open...

#31 - Lily of the Valley

In honor of my soon-to-be-born niece, Baby Vada, I drew the flower for the month of May.  It's also the first time I drew more than one flower...

#19 - Unidentified flower

I have seen lots of very beautiful flowers on the internets, but unfortunately they were not identified, if anyone has any idea what it might be, please let me know and I'll label it correctly.

This one has so many different varities too, and I couldn't decide which one, so basically I just decided on the one that looked easiest, I will try another variety later...

#8 - Morning Glory

So I'm up to date with this drawing!  I like the shading on this one too...

#7 - African Daisy

(Originally created 4/8/2011)

#6 - Cypress Vine

(Originally created on 4/7/2011)

#5 - Plumeria

I am really proud of this one, I really like the shading...(originally created on 4/6/2011)

#4 - Crocus Wildflower

I found out how hard it is get shading and composition right...I'd forgotten about this drawing I feel doesn't show the correct contours because of it...I'm working on it...(originally created on 4/5/2011)

#3 - Rose Bud

I eventually will tackle a full rose, but I have to admit that flower intimidates that's why I decided to just take on the rose bud for now...(it was originally drawn on 4/4/2011)

#2 - Peace Lily

(originally created on 4/3/2011)

#1 - Saguaro Blossom

Here is my first drawing in my attempt to create one drawing a day for the next 365 days.  Since I didn't start this blog on the exact day of my drawings, the first few will show up under todays date.  I welcome any constructive criticism.  I have not put pencil to paper in SUCH a long time so I know I will not start off strong, but I hope to get better and better as the days go by.  I will also be adding color pencils, but probably not for a while, maybe until I feel more confident with just a black pencil for now...
