I have  been avoiding those  two canvases prepared for Lynn Whipple’s Big Bold Blum online class for some time.  Eventually I just needed to  start, do the first marks. For some reasons I felt intimidated.

Also I felt my style of flowers was oscillating  between real flowers and child like flowers and couldn’t get settle for one or the other…

  awkward stage

Some pencil 
More layers and then pastels to define and be playful!  

I’m very unsure about this piece; I only like bits and pieces of it for now. 

I will leave it aside for a while ..

A while ago, my husband and I went on morning trip to Fog Dam. An hour drive south of Darwin, I certainly didn’t want this trip to be too long. The humidity and the heat were quite unbearable.

But I simply forgot about those details when I saw those lotus flowers everywhere… Surreal experience.
