I did an old art class exercise, where you take a pen and start every line while looking at the paper, but then look away back at your subject/object as you draw it. I did all the lines of the peony like that, then just for fun coloured it in with art markers and sharpies.
Here's a shot of the lines only, and then coloured in. This was supposed to be a quick drawing because I spent so long sewing earlier today and am wiped, but I ended up spending way longer than planned on it, oops! Need to work on time limits for these or else I'm going to burn out after a month!
