I have let a small peice of it growing and have been photographing it.
I started an acrylic of the plant. The flowers are gorgeous but alas I know what must
be done for the safety of the rest of the garden, so the plant will be immortilized on canvas before
I plot its demise.
Today was block in the canvas and portions for background. I work very loosely when I start, two to three phases before what I get the part I call 'clean up'. Here is the start of what is on the easel for this Tidal moon evening on July 22, 2013.
I will post photos as I go along. Photo I am working from was taken in the early morning sun for more dramatic lighting. Lots to go on this one yet.
