    watercolor flower

    I stumbled across a photo of a strange looking yet hauntingly compelling (to me) flower a few months ago and downloaded it to my "try drawing this when my abilities improve" file folder. I'm not sure my skills are yet up to the task but I decided to give it a try; while the result doesn't do the flower justice, I'm not unpleased with it. Nearly all done with watercolor and just a very small amount of airbrush on three layers.

    As always, C&C welcome.

    Whatever it is, it's a gorgeous painting and ... that flower is staring eagerly at us... Is it some sort of alien carnivorous plant?

    Excellent job! Very well done. I would add an abstract yet very subtle background. Maybe in a complementary color to the overall tone.
