But today I have a tidbit to share with you. I know several people have been talking about a May Flower Challenge...I'm not sure who actually started it but I thought I'd give it a whirl. I haven't done many flowers lately and I used to draw nothing but flowers! I had a restless night last night so I got up very late this morning and this is as far as I've gotten but it's a good start...
As you can see, I have several books about drawing or painting flowers. I just pulled out three that I hadn't looked at in years and began flipping through the pages...but I went back to my old stand-by. There's something about the shape of the petals I drew that is so ingrained in me that I think I could draw them in my sleep! My hand automatically wants to make that shape when I think flowers.
And PS - I did this without any pencil!
That's almost a first for me!
