Seeing but not seeing, then discovering

Drawing connections
This was how this morning’s drawing session went.

Pffaf about where to start on the page.
Scribble some outlines.
Then looked – at the vase, the nasturtium, the leaves, the stems going up, across, stems twisting around main stem – all the while, pencilling.
Sketch done. Pfaff about what to do next. Always get stumped here.
Ok, goauche in main shapes. Gel pen the stems.
Finished. But wait.
Look at that amazing shadow. Such a solid and interesting shape – a second subject.

How did I not see it until I’d ‘finished’ drawing? Mmm…wonder how many other interesing things I must be not seeing?
