Picking up a pencil, pen and brush again. Trying new techniques and maybe developing my own style.

I have a beautiful bouquet of flowers on the table, which just kept calling to me. Paint me! Paint me! Paint me before I drop all my petals! So I am painting it, bit by bit. I started with a stalk of brilliantly red Alstroemeria. Their common name is the Peruvian Lily. The flowers are made up of 3 petals and 3 sepals, referred to by botanists as tepals! One other rather unusual thing I noticed while painting the flowers is that the leaves all twist, so the lower leaf surface faces up.
