Number 16: Amaryllis

This amaryllis is about to burst. It was a Thanksgiving gift, but had several detours before it arrived safely at our house and we began to water it. I think next time, I will draw this sort of plant with softer, darker pencils. There was a quality of line I wanted to capture that I don’t think came across in this drawing. But I think the drawing still shows the fecundity of the blossom about to bloom.

    I love the crumbly earth breaking away from the stalk – the detail is really lovely.
