Hanami - Cherry blossom, named after the traditional custom in Japan of enjoying the transient beauty of flowers.
I took the reference photograph of a local cherry tree which never fails to impress with it's thick covering of blossom every spring. This drawing was created with colour pencils, the paper I used was more textured and gave the artwork a softer look more like the effect you would get using pastels.
This artwork was created using Artist pencils on Lux Archival
