I don't usually draw flowers. I don't think I have the "delicate touch" for making them pretty. But a few days ago, some Day Lillies in my backyard just called my name, and I decided, "What the heck...give it a go." I tried to let myself just study the forms, like I would any other thing I sketch.
Tonight, I just finished up on a sketch of some "Riviera Midnight Blue Lobelia" that is in front of my house. I think it's a good exercise to keep drawing the flowers, so I'll continue...and no one is more surprised than I am.
