Amaryllis Sketch

This is the latest page from my sketchbook, showing an amaryllis that I did from an old photo. I had purchased an amaryllis in December, thinking that I would grow it right after Christmas. I waited too long, and my house was too warm, and the plant started growing in the box and was too far gone by the time I realized it. So today I bought a new amaryllis, and planted it as soon as I got home. I plan to sketch it as it grows with the expectation that I will eventually have a beautiful amaryllis in full bloom to paint. Keeping my fingers crossed.
