While visiting my daughter in California last week, (my newly married daughter) I was able to do a few sketches of the roses that my wonderful son-in-law had recently given her.  He is DEFINITELY starting out right!  I love drawing flowers with a minimum of pen strokes, and in a slightly geometric way.  For some reason the total 'softness' of the flower disturbs me and I have to give it some interesting angles.  I used three different shades of grey for this rose, and enjoyed a quiet hour developing the folds and petals.
