Black pen contour line drawing for my lilies

Worked on lilies and a line drawing, then how to do it with colour.  A little harder… There’s more to think about.  I had two goes at both…  I like the second go better.  Think the line is stronger and the color less pretty and more working for me.

Another try, this time going for more a more calligraphy style. Maybe the background is too dark on the right?

Painted a w/c background, then lifted out parts of the vase with an inch brush and put colour in with other brush strokes.
