a quick quick sketch with a good ole HB pencil on scrap of paper without peeking
at a waratah picture or reference.
I also STOPPED myself from grabbing the eraser, being too perfect or adding other mediums (I'm a mixed media addict so THAt was hard!)
I found that I was really concentrating on the roundness of the Waratah.
I could almost feel the texture of those glossy fingers reaching up and curving round. xx
