Budleija Butterfly plant

I did start this study thinking I would draw a botanical drawing, this would mean an accurate drawing. A good opportunity to practice observational measuring, colour mixing and composition. However, it became very clear to me, that I really dont enjoy it! its very labourious and I’m just too impatient and I kept getting sidetracked with the lines and spaces and playing with paint. Im am happy with this drawing, enjoying the delicate pattern.
