I get all jazzed up drawing flowers and just can’t resist adding the bee. It is typical for me to work for a photograph of the subject. This picture was taking in my neighbors front yard while walking the dogs. I also like to practice the drawing in my sketchbook. It is interesting to compare the sketchbook drawing and the final drawing. The sketchbook drawing has more of a spontaneous flavor which I loose in the finished drawing. What do you think? Skip the practice and start on the good paper? Or use the good paper for a more polished drawing after practicing? What is your process? Practice first or right to the good paper?
