This a small painting of a lotus, seen at the Jerusalem botanical garden: lemon yellow center, aquamarine blue shadow. “A souvenir is barely a lotus showing, through the water, its flooded face.” Carrera Andrade.
I’m always doing at least one sketch before I paint on a canvas. Sometimes I can’t stop myself: I do several sketches of the same flower.
In fact, it’s not a problem: for me it’s and opportunity to check several paths.
