pincushion protea

A friend gave my son this branch of pincushion proteas which are brightening up the mountain here in Cape Town right now. They are intricate and intense flowers and i thought i’d give them a whirl as they sat on our dining room table in an old blue wine bottle. I ended up getting more engrossed in the reflections of the bottle so that by the time i got to the flowers i gave them a very free treatment. I ran out of my background yellow so i couldn’t fill in the entire background, but this drawing makes me happy despite its flaws!
