illustrative art – rose and portrait


Rose Illustration


I have typically not produced much floral artwork but I really enjoyed creating this rose illustration. Floral art together with portraiture is the essence of this piece.

This is a simple composition. I wanted the portrait element to connect with the viewer directly. Facial features, especially the eyes always make for an easy connection. I love the psychology behind what connects a person with a piece of art.

As for any meaning, I will leave it up to the viewer to take from this illustrative art what they will.

Like all my other coloured-pencil drawings, this artwork is created using only the best materials. Namely Caran D’Ache Luminance lightfast pencils on a slightly textured paper. The finished artwork is sealed with a top-quality fixative.

Medium: Lightfast pencil on paper
