Battenburg Lace and Hydrangeas

Tea and Hydrangeas
colored pencil
18" x 18"

I finally finished this one up. After all those little petals, the battenburg lace was an absolute joy to draw. It's kind of funny, I guess, but I've been drawing still lifes with lace in them for 20 years now and this was the first time that I drew battenburg lace. It won't be the last. I've got a cedar chest full of laced edged scarfs in my studio and this is the only piece of battenburg lace that I own. Hmmm...guess I need to go ebay shopping!
