karvi flower

Once in while it's good exercise to paint something different than your regular liking. I do not like to paint small flower or similar subject as it takes too much of time and not spontaneous. Here is attempt to paint flower from my photo reference. Karvi is shrub which blooms only once in 8 years. This is typically found in Sahyadri ranges in Maharashtra . Adivasis use Karvy shrub (dried after cutting) for making walls of their huts.
