I know what you're thinking. Carnations? How boring! Well, I have a soft spot for carnations :) - The delicately ruffled petals, gorgeous colors and longevity make it a favorite flower for my home. And they are certainly fun to draw!
I usually have a basic idea when I begin working on a illustration. This one was a mishmash of all the times Tarun (with a twinkle in his eyes and an impish smile on his face) brought home a fluffy bunch of white, pink or red Carnations. I began with the flowers, detailing out the petals and making sure the colors were just right. Then came the birds and everything just fell into place.
What do you think? What are the flowers you buy for you home or loved one?
Carnations, available for purchase here.
