I took this photo a few years ago in the conservator at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, USA. It’s always a great trip heading over there!
As you may have noticed, I’ve been trying to learn how to draw. One of things I’ve been practicing with have been flowers.
I did an search on flowers to draw from, and I had a big DUH moment. I have plenty of flowers in my OWN photographic catalog that I can draw from from for practice. Ha!
So, I drew this orchid. It’s ok, I guess, especially since I did it quickly in a 15 minute time frame, ie my morning break. I didn’t have a color copy printed to get the colors right, but at least I could get some of the shading ok.
Here’s my drawing:
It’s “meh,” but it works. At least you can sort of tell what it is!
During lunch, I’ll choose another flower and work on that, and try to improve.
