I've loved Agapanthus -- "Lily of the Nile" -- since I first noticed them after having lived in a cold area where they wouldn't grow.

I keep forgetting to time how much time it takes, but the first stage took between an hour and a half and two, including drawing.

The finished one took another 90+ minutes. I had a terrible time with the background. Will be getting more practice as time progresses.

Gorgeous purples and greens! I did try to grow this Lily of the Nile before with no luck, too cold here.
