This is a video and image of a drawing of a rose. The video shows how the rose was drawn and painted with thin lines, washes of color, and expressive highlights. The drawing / painting is 12″x9″ and was created with pens, markers, paint pens, colored pencils, and watercolors. There are also segments of silver and gold paint around the flower. The rose was constructed with an initial vibrancy that represents the flower’s attribution to the emotions of love. And like love in its many undulating forms, the drawing continues to deepen and change over the course of time, sometimes darker sometimes lighter, but with a consistent undercurrent expressed with some clarity amidst the whole. (Total drawing time was about 20 minutes.)

    Hi Michael,
    Thatโ€™s is the coolest thing Iโ€™ve seen a long time. (And you didnโ€™t even stop to pee or anything!!)

    I really enjoyed seeing how you actually execute these pieces. The rose is beautiful and seemed to come to you with such ease. I love the undertones that peek through.
