I was sitting in someone's backyard looking for someone to pose for me. The potted plant volunteered. When most people draw something like this, they would never actually draw every leaf and stem in their actual positions. An artist would give you the impression of what these flowers were like. They would basically fake most of it. Only someone with severe OCD would actually draw every leaf precisely. That's where I come in. Even when I make my first few pen strokes for something like this, I groan to myself, "what the hell are you doing?" It always seems to come out good but the process is daunting. It's sort of like eating jalapeno peppers, no matter how many times I get burned, I always go back for more.
