Two Seed Pod Posies

This morning I finished the posy to the right, and I thought it would be interesting to post both versions together.

The version on the right was actually drawn before the one on the left; it was the inspiration for yesterday’s drawing tutorial video on YouTube. I decided to add colour to it yesterday evening, and I added the subtle background pattern this morning.

I like both and would find it hard to pick one as a favourite. There are pros and cons to each for sure.

What do you think? Which do you prefer?

    Hi Angela

    I like both – a lot – but I think the one on the right just tips the balance for me. I, too, love seed pods, and seed heads, etc and they have featured in my artwork frequently over the years. I used to do a lot of hand and machine embroidery/textile art, and seed pods and the like featured regularly. I’m now doing lots and lots of drawing (several hours every day!) and your philosophy on drawing has helped me greatly, so thank you!

    I really enjoyed yesterday’s youtube video by the way…

    Kind regards
