In this peice of art I used pastel pencils. I chose this medium because I wanted to try something new and the colors blend well the the different color values in the flowers. These flowers are called rhododendrons which grow in east Tennessee along the Appalacian Trail, which turn pink and purple by spring. In this picture the flowers are starting to bloom, showing their shades of pink and purple. The background consisted of dark leaves which I blurred togerther to create more emphasis on the flowers, making them the center of interest.
