This is an original pastel drawing from a series that I have created for the San Diego Japanese Friendship Garden. I wanted to create something of beauty and color in the bonsai genre. Flowering Bonsai are of great value in the Bonsai world and are grown to show off their flowers. I composed this Pastel drawing to accentuate that aesthetics.
My pastel drawings are made from soft pastels. Soft pastels are a versatile medium that allow you to build layers of brilliant colors and tones. The pastel is applied to fully express the beauty of Bonsai.
