Let’s Try Those Little Pony Feeties Again

It’s hard to draw flowers when your heart is full of stress and worry, but today was a little better than how the last crazy week has been, so I’ve given the Dichondra another go.

I looked back at my sketches, and actually had one with the leaves enlarged.  I charted them up and used them, plus the flowers from the smaller drawing.  This is the result:

It’s a little hard to envision that, just from a black and white grid that doesn’t screen-cap particularly well.  So here is how the flowers would look on that taupe.  (Not the color I’m going to use, but it makes a nice display on the computer.)

That’s not too bad.  The stem and that one tiny light leaf should stitch up more green and less yellow.   And you can’t really see it, but there are little purple anthers.

Hmm.  I think I need to go back and put in one more petal-color stitch at the bottom center of the fully open flower.  But I think I like it!

Wow.  That’s actually going to be a heck of a lot of stitching.  There are a lot of stitches in those leaves.

Here’s what it might look like over one:

That is just about right.  Compare:

And I think it looks Gerda-ish.  What do you think?
