Shoot it, Sketch it – Crocus Flower

This week for Shoot it, Sketch it I used this photograph of a Crocus Flower. I took this photograph a few years ago back in New Zealand. I picked the Crocus Flower as I wanted to play with the lines in the petals with my watercolours.

I feel the pressure week to week of this feature – but pressure is good :) It makes me draw & reminds me of the various ways one can interpret a single photograph. I would love to see the results of 100 people using 1 single photograph for drawing inspiration!

  1. What a stunning … photo, have you taken it??? Drawing is so beautiful. I love crocus, the color my world in the early spring over here … and they give me my favorite spice, saffron. 200 flowers for 1 gram … no wonder it’s expensive.
