Drawing at the Famous


The Famous Water Company in Mineral Wells uses the old wells which were discovered in the 1800's a curative...the water with lithium cured "The Crazy Lady". Today the Famous sells water and in the spring they also serve meal Saturday, June 17, beginning at 7pm. Reservations are suggested.

Carol Elder, owner, is allowing me to come to the garden and draw. Here is a lily I drew this morning. I used micron pen with prismacolor colored pencils on moleskine. I tried the technique Cynthis Padilla uses of not coloring in all the plant.

It's beautiful Sioux! You really captured the yellow so nicely. I like the way Cynthia does her 'half done' drawings also. It is effective.
