The final page in Anna’s book is progressing. You can see just a tad of Cathe’s image to the right. The subject I chose was the stages of a Christmas Cactus(Schlumbergera) flower. This, the final page, holds a dried/shriveled flower. I stared out using colored pencils and shifted rapidly to watercolors. We shall see how it all turns out.
I was surprised at how intricate the flower becomes once dried. So much detail shows through the dried petals! It was this detail that stopped movement forward on the project. I couldn’t “dumb things down” in my brain and allow a looser flowing drawing. Somehow I managed to let go and take baby steps forward. Maybe in another day it will be finished!
