Work in Progress: "From the Garden" (working title), 16 x 20 inches

I thought I'd share the work in progress stages of a new artwork I am working on. This one is on 16 x 20 inch illustration board. I was inspired to do a floral arrangement after seeing some beautiful paintings by another artist, however I decided to keep this monochromatic so as to focus on the shapes and patterns in the image. I may do another version in color though.

Anyway, I started this piece earlier this afternoon. I've included a photograph of the initial sketch and then the beginnings of me inking in the image. I plan on adding acrylic paint into the background as well.
