The oleander plant in my terrace has been tirelessly putting out gorgeous flowers for the past two weeks. More insects seem to visit my terrace and a few more butterflies have come over too.
I have been avoiding drawing or painting the plant . On the wall whose colours have turned pale with years the pink flowers appear like a blessing. Even now I pretend that I did not draw this, but it got drawn out on its own.
I have used dry chalk pastel, rubbed the colours and have worked broadly on my picture.
