Another sketch of flowers

I did another sketch of couple of flowers a poppy whose petals had blown away and a dried anthurium flower. I find so hard to paint dark colours in watercolours. I might attempt the anthurium again as I am not entirely satisfied with what I have done.


  1. you have such nice handwriting :)

    dark can be tricky in watercolour. I try to leave the light areas as light as possible so the dark areas look darker.

  2. Thank you Jen. Thanks for the tip too. I think I will draw it again like the way you suggested

  3. I like this Shashi - interesting subject - love flowers that are about done.

  4. Yes suddenly I am finding beauty even in a flower that is withered. Now is that saying something to me? Hmmm

    1. it might be - ...hmm

      beauty is in the eye of the beholder...


      there is beauty in decay...


      everything is beautiful in it's own way.... sounds like a song title, lol

      hope you sketch some more ... and thanks for all your comments.

  5. if you keep going u are going to have a great collection of flower sketches - live and decayed - you are doing beautiful sketches.
