Sibley Lake is in Natchitoches, near my home. There is a large cove in the lake that used to be full of these graceful lotus plants. I took lots of photographs of them last summer. I decided to draw one of those photographs in colored pencil. This is the finished drawing. I used some of the solvent to help melt the pencil, and I used the Icarus Board to blend the background. I will take this up to the gallery tomorrow, and it will be on display and for sale.
