Obligatory heliconia drawing ... Unfinished.
I really should keep at it and put a lot more work into this drawing. But I’ve spent far too long on it as it is, and find myself with absolutely no energy left, so I’m afraid it will have to remain unfinished. I may return to it some day, but then again perhaps it’s just meant to remain the way it is. I’m constantly agonizing over the right time to put the pencils down and just Stop. I doubt if I’ll ever learn, despite the knowledge that it can be dangerous to overwork a piece -- and end up destroying it. Sometimes it’s best just to leave things the way they are :)
I think this is heliconia rostrata, which grows rampantly within the neat beds of my mother's garden.
