Not that I'm drawing this Clematis for men in particular :P
I just started this drawing of Clematis 'Brunette' only because I am in love with the dark flowers. I've had this Clematis for years in my garden but it died last winter. I bought a new one a few weeks ago. So, before planting it, I thought to draw this beauty. Looks very intelligent and perhaps it will earn me more money than a blonde ;)

This is quite beautiful -- as is all of your work. You often inspire me to work harder to capture more realism. Keep up the good work.

I have to agree with Jan. This is spectacular. You make me want to try this more often and take more time on it.

It looks so real,

This is a stunningly beautiful piece Sigrid. Oh and as a brunette, I am now brimming with confidence. :)
