Here's the result using the gorgeous reference pic provided. This was provided by fellow artist Sharon K.M. Thank-you.
It's not a sketch (too much detail), it's not a finished drawing (too rough for that), it's a study with a million mistakes that have been taken aboard and not forgotten.
"Peony in Vase"
10x12 cm, study in graphite
This was fun and definately a much needed exercise.
Looking forward to next months challenge.
