Out of the mud… How to draw and paint the Sacred Lotus
September 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT
The curving petals of a lotus flower present an interesting challenge to the artist. Each petal has a slightly different curve, some smooth, some with a keel or ridge. You see each petal from a different angle, here a view into the interior, there the outside of the petal. The color pattern is a mixture of smooth blends from pink to white and fine crisp lines. Finally the color itself is a luminous clear pink. How do you mix this color and how to you prevent the color from getting, well, muddy? By studying the lotus you will gain insight into solving many subtle drawing challenges.
