My monochromatic rose. The only color of a rose that I have seen is red. I love red but for this rose I didn't want to do that color. I wanted to branch out to another color. A bright color, so I picked orange.
I started off doing a light pencil work; getting the form of the pencil down and them I did a light black outline of the color. The shading was the difficult part, but I found reference for it and took it from there. I picked my light source to be at the top left hand corner so the highlights could be visible. This is one of my favorite drawings. Mind you, I only used a white, black, and orange colored pencil. That's right; this was all done in colored pencil.
