I wanted to make a very simple drawing. Nothing conceptual or complicated, just plain minimalistic.
The idea isn't new and has been used in photography before, but I thought I'd give it a shot with pencils (no reference photo).
Well here it is. I like the simplicity of it. Hope you like it too.

- 2H graphite and colored pencil on paper
- 25 x 25 cm
- about 6 hours


edit: changed the border color to match the print version. Also, thank you all for the kind comments and the favs.

The final flower on the most left of the branch takes my breath away. Awesome job on the vase. Brilliant stuff.

The shading of vase is done so perfectly! I thought it was a picture when I saw the thumbnail.
