Hummingbird shower mural - drawing the flowers

by brae  

After completing the leaves and shadowy branches, I started working on the flowering branches.  Since I knew I wouldn't be able to draw them all in one sitting, I decided to move around the drawing.  If the remaining flowers end up looking a little different, at least they won't be concentrated in one part of the drawing.

My flowers are more orangey-pink than pure red pink like the inspiration art.  I like that, though.  :D  Besides, once this drawing is scanned, printed and manipulated to look like tile, the colors will likely be more subdued than the original drawing.

See I left room for tiny bird feet?  :D

Hi Brae, are you going to colour all flowers and birds?....I think I like the alternation of vague and colourfull parts in your drawing.... Anyway, I'm curious how things will look like when you have scanned and manipulated it!

I like the buds. It will be nice when it's all finished!

I like the way you've faded the colour out at the edge of the petals. It's looking good.
