Challenge #89. A button. Three versions.






Button #1 is done in ball point pen. I got the shading backwards - it was lighter down the center.

Button #2 is using a Faber Castell Art Pen.

Button #3 is pencil sketched then watercolors - trying out a nifty little travel set.

I like the red button too! They are all good but that one truly leaps out.

I vote for the red one too. Nice work.

Red one !!! Buttons are CHALLENGING -- they're tiny with such subtle differentiations of color and shading -- even if you think you're reversed the shade on the red -- it's still beautifully done1!!

You do well with all of them! But I think I like the watercolor best....I sketch with pen, but it just doesn't look right to me until I add color!--Carol C.

Yep -- the red button gets my vote, too! Good for you for trying the challenge in three different mediums, too!

Thanks for the comments everyone. I was feeling a little discouraged.

The button is from my long ago disintegrated favorite hawaiian shirt.

I am sure I commented on this? I adore that red button. I can almost pick it up and feel the texture of it. Great picture.
