The Life of an Amaryllis Part II

Watercolors, Pitt Big Brush Pens, Noodler's Sequoia ink (diluted) in a Kaweco Sport BB
Stillman & Birn 5.5x8.5" Epsilon hardbound book
Page background prepared in advance with diluted fluid and iridescent acrylics

I don't know how long it's supposed to take before an amaryllis starts to flower, but mine isn't showing any interest in doing so! This is my second sketch in this Life of an Amaryllis series. You can see the first installment here.

  1. If the bulb is too small it may take a year to build up. It’s all about location. My biggest bulb did not flower this year but I put one of its offshoot bulbs in to a different pot and that one pushed up a bud it’s going to flower soon.
