Lilies On Vellum
Tools Used
  • Derwent Graphic Hard graphite pencils
  • Staedtler 100% Rag Vellum paper

This was an experiment with vellum – specifically, layering multiple sheets to create depth. The lily in the foreground is one the top sheet, the one on the left is on the sheet below and lastly, the lily on the right. Shading was done on the back of each sheet to further try and create depth. The scanner muted the effect as the original really pops out and better shows the result I was going after.
