A friend invited me for tea on Friday. She had a beautiful Amaryllis growing in a pot. I still wanted to take a photo, but she said: “No, I am going to give it to you!” And just like that she cut them off and I left with these beautiful, large flowers in my car. So I made sketches.

The first one I did with Rotring pen.

The next one was done with WaterColour pencils (but without water..)


Then I tried to do a quick sketch and not to put in too much detail.

  1. I love all three versions Cecily, they’re all different with each their own character. If I may choose a favourite, I’ll choose the inksketch with the rotring, beautiful!

  2. I got watercolour pencils yesterday, and I have never tried it before. Maybe I will try to copy this picture. It was beautiful :)
