Trumpet Vine

I can’t decide whether this is finished or not. I will study it for a little while before I decide. I am thinking of smoothing out some of the dark to light sections in the background…right hand side in particular.

This is watercolor, colored pencil and graphite. I am looking a lot at old art nouveau drawings for inspiration. I stared this piece for a friend who likes that kind of work–so I am trying to add that art nouveau quality. I might do a series of these as I really love the shapes and color.
