Drawing - Inspired by Embroidered Flowers

From my 15.5x13.3 Sketchbook

After travelling around Asia for almost a month, I realised the small sketchbook I had carried everywhere with me remained empty. While scrolling through photos looking for inspiration for clothes to get made in Hoi An I came across Embroidered Flowers.

I got out my sketch book and drew the top flower pattern. 
Our connecting flight between Kuala Lumpur and Sydney was delayed a couple of hours so I drew the bottom flower pattern whilst waiting for the hours to pass at the airport.

2. Angalamman Festival, India by Mahesh Balasubramanian
5. Photographer/Source Unknown
6. By Paolo

Loving all these beautiful photos of different shades and patterns of blue. I was inspired to make this post when I saw Parker Fitzgeralds 'Lauren in the River' on Studded Hearts. I fell in love with the photo and decided I was lovin all sorts of blue photos at the moment. Coincidently my blog currently has a bit of a blue theme running through.
