Lotus Sumi-e Paiting
.Have you seen lotus before??
The lotus is really huge and elegant flower. It is tall and its leaves are big as well.
It is until the first of August that the lotus bloom on the surface. There are lotus full over the water on the lake in Ueno, Tokyo.
Most of the lotus sumi-e drawing is depicted by the line. but I wanted to draw this flower's meteculaous shading with one stroke. work well??
the petal is reall big and round deep. You need to depict it with the ratio of front part and back part.
The pistil part would be better drawn the most black. and hairs surrounded.
here's what I saw in the summer: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sumi-e/2...
