Bees on the parsley flowers
I was talking to an artist friend and telling him I wished I was able to draw the bees buzzing around the parsley flowers but it was too hard. He encouraged me to give it a go. He told me not to just think of being realistic but to convey the feeling of what I was seeing. I did a couple of realistic drawings and then did swirls and patterns to convey the movement. I really enjoyed doing these drawings and painting because it pulled me away from doing strictly outlines which is what I have been doing. I'd love to explore abstact drawing in the future along with the other 101 ideas.
Lots of love from Susan in Australia
