Finished! Here is the finished drawing:
I am happy with how it turned out. I wanted to capture the simple beauty of daffodils in black and white. I kept the drawing to a roughly 5 x 7 space as I worked. After playing with different size matting and color, I opted for a slightly larger matting to focus the eye on the drawing. I also thought that the white matting helped to bring out better contrast between the light and dark of the drawing.
