EDM #26 - draw anything you like

5x7, dry pastels on bristol vellum

I decided to try out some new chalk pastels as I've only worked in oil pastels to date. Normally I do a light sketch before laying down any of the medium but I wanted to achieve a loose, impressionist style to portray this beautiful Kalanchoe plant. It was a quick & relaxing sketch and a wonderful reminder that Spring is on the way =)
