For the past few days, I have admired the beautiful, fragrant lily and its way to dryness. The process is merciless but extremely interesting in its forms: curled petals, dusting stamens. My lilly sketches, she was dying a couple of beautiful days;).

Sketches from subsequent days. The plant slowly falls, twists and shrinks.

As a standard, first a quick, very general pencil sketch, and I immediately jump on the ink. This time I used pen dipped in ink … a hard thing 🙂 Hence these stains and streaks. :>
Then watercolors.

I felt like I have to sketch this plant one more time today! I don’t know why, maybe to check if my mind remembered shapes of plant. So I did it.
