This is Home, truly
Where I know I must be
Where my dreams wait for me
Where the river always flows
This is Home, surely
As my senses tell me
This is where I won't be alone
For this is where I know is Home

For Diva Challenge # 323- Home, I made an attempt to sketch our national flower🌸, the beautiful Vanda Miss Joaquim orchid (I know I know, my drawing skills generally leave much to be desired😟) to tangle with printemps, sandswirl, zedbra and gimli.
As a first, I tried using two different shades of the same colour (a purple Sakura Micron, as well as a lavender Copic drawing pen) in an attempt to differentiate the petals, using a silver Sakura pen to try and add some shadow (and pizzaz🎇), and then coloured it in with my trusty colour pencils.
I once again turned to my new love💖, the Blackwing Pearl pencil (OMG I think I fell in love all over again😍) for complete the image with a little bit of shading. To read more about my new love and my pencil explorations with different kinds of pencils, check out my previous post here.
The lyrics shared above are from a locally written song, performed a number of years back by a local artiste at the National Day celebrations - I was humming and singing it the whole time I was working on the orchid - it's a great song IMO, so do check it out!😀:
I realise I sometimes end up humming or singing when I'm working on my zentangles. Does it happen to anyone else?
