I decided to try a more detailed approach to this drawing. I started with charcoal but soon abandoned it for graphite because I couldn’t get the sharp lines with vine charcoal.
I wanted to do a more detailed drawing of the sunflower to see if I could do an accurate representation of all the detail while getting away from the more sloppy possibilities that charcoal offers. In the end I was able to really get deep into the detail but I realized after 1 hour that drawing with pencil is very tedious and to complete a finished drawing it would be very time consuming. I guess I need a bit more freedom when I’m drawing, and graphite just doesn’t offer it as well as charcoal.
