I inherited a good dose of persistence from my mother,
so I just couldn't leave the hellebore drawing unfinished (see previous post).

And perhaps the hellebore has some persistence of its own - flowering with all its delicate beauty in the cold and wind of early Spring.

This original 8x10 inch drawing is available.
(watercolour and coloured pencil on paper)

Okay, I can't draw a hellebore

Seriously! I've been trying all week.
I've done several sketches and started two large drawings and it's just not working!
Creating can be so fickle and... well... frustrating.

The beauty of the hellebore is its dreamy soft colours and its delicate centres - 
neither of which I can capture!

Please go outside and take a look at one, because I can't do it justice with my hand!
