I did this drawing of a fuchsia flower in response to a very interesting post on
about zen drawing, really seeing and feeling what you're drawing.
I totally agree with the concept, but putting it into practice is a lot harder.
Even though I enjoyed drawing the fuchsia and appreciated it's delicacy and shell like shapes, my result is very heavy handed and doesn't portray the beautiful lightness of the ballerina flower.
Nevertheless even though my fuchsia bell is more like a barbell, I bet when I try it in watercolour it will be a lot easier now that I'm so familiar with the shapes and structure of the flower.
Well we'll see, maybe, ya but no but ya but...
