Boutonniere

For Janey Fields
After returning home from my long-time friend’s memorial service I unpinned the boutonniere from my jacket and set it on the counter. I decided to set it in a small vase and enjoy it for as long as it would last. Looking at it I really appreciated the beauty of the flower and decided to draw it.

I used color pencil and put it on black mat board to make it stand out. It was surprising and interesting to see how the black surface changed the colors of the pencils which were mostly oranges, yellows and reds.
