Lantana camara Flower

Lantana camara Flower - student project

Native to South America, just like me :), this gorgeous flower is one of my absolute favourites. I have taken many pictures of these gorgeous flowers. So I took one from my personal library and draw it. I am not super happy about the stem or the leaves, but I think I capture the essence of the flower. 

I worked with a mixture of watercolour and colour pencils (it was my first time with colour pencils, so I wasn't very comfortable with them).

 

Here is the final:
