Apprentice Artist – Red Poppy

Creating this Red Poppy drawing is all about the colouring. Mastering colour pencils is about finding a balance – keep your grip light for graceful strokes and avoid overworking your lines. This crisp white paper is the perfect backdrop for this single flower, unlike craft paper, it offers clarity. Take your time with this drawing, focus on the lines and shapes. Also working at a subtle angle adds depth and don’t forget how the concept of negative space can bring focus to your subject. What you leave blank can be just as captivating as what you draw. I hope you enjoy this art lesson.
