Who doesn't love the fresh aroma, the soft touch, the warm feeling that flowers bring!
Nothing like flowers to cheer one up, right? Wrong!
For the past few weeks, I have been battling with my pencils to sketch a few of my favorite flowers and the results have been very very disappointing. While landscapes remain my favorite subject, I do not think I have the courage to ever draw flowers again.
I just cannot capture the seemingly simple and elegant beauty of these creations on paper. So here's a sample of my dismal work.
Pansy: I swear to god, I hate all pansies now (pun unintended)...Everything went wrong with my first attempt - the drawing, the strokes, everything.
Carnation: The flower is menacing in its simplicity; it camouflages an artist's worst nightmare...
Tulips: How can anyone go wrong with Tulips...Well, I can...
Dogwood: Am sure, this is everyone's favorite doodle flower. A lot of my notebooks in school, college and even some notepads at work have been subjected to many dogwoods :).
P.S. After viewing the above sketches, please do not "unfollow" me or remove me from your feeds, I plan to move to some other subjects, I promise :).
