Over spring break I was at a Chinese restaurant in California with my family. This is the plate they set on our table. I love the whimsical flowers on it.
So I decided to try drafting my own version of the flower in the lower left corner. Since it is almost symmetrical I started drafting half of the pattern.
Once I had half the drawing done I took it to the window and traced the other half on the opposite side of the paper to get the full image.
The result is similar, but to me it looks more like a butterfly than a flower. I'd need to go back and stretch out the flower so it is a lot wider. I always learn things when I doodle!
