Flowers and plants offer all sorts of challenges for the Pen & Ink Artist. The reference photo I took was of a cluster of Lily,s from the same plant with the long tapered leaves in the background. Pen techniques used were contour line work, careful use of contrast & shading. The background leaves have a parallel line technique with all lines drawn on a 45-degree angle with the use of contrast to indicate shading, lights & darks, bends in the leaves. Most importantly this technique gives the leaves a faded background look to them with the flowers being the main focus of this sketch.
