Lotus Flower


Super, recognise your work ... not too heavy for me

I would say sturdy, certainly not heavy Mia. Beautiful as always.

Lovely and delicate Mia

This is gorgeous. I don't think it's too heavy at all; it's the high contrast that makes it so striking.

Beautiful Mia

Thank you all very much for your reassuring comments. I appreciate!

Your sketches are super Mia, i also like when you glaze with colour. One way to experiment is to photostat the original on either A4 paper or cartridge paper and colour them to see how they look. The Lotus flower has such lovely pinks and yellows with touches of green.

Thank you very much, David. Yes, maybe I will make a coloured version of this beautiful, colourful flower.

A pen and wash using my Elegant Writer pen with a wash of clear water. Size A4. I think it is a bit too heavy but I am not sure. What do you think? All comments as usual very welcome :) Mia
