I really struggled with this exercise. My heart sank at the very thought of it. I dislike observational drawing of detail. I am interested in broad, architectural shapes, strong, simple colours. Another complicating factor was the time of year, December. I looked in local florists but was not excited by any of the available flowers.

All I can say was I got off to a bad start, I left it for a bit to wait for inspiration…..and none came. So here are my efforts, I had a go at two different plants and was not happy with either.
