She went. I looked. I found her on the other side of the plant. I thought she was checking something. I gently let her on a paper and placed her on the leaves for another painting. If the ladybird got frighten, she might just fly away abd I could never find her. This awareness add a bit more alertness to the painter (which was me who) was enjoying the privilege to be alone with her! During the painting, I noted the spider plant withered a bit. When the painting finished. I put the ladybird back into the garden and gave some water to the plant! The sparkling light captured on the leaves by pressing the brush gave life to the picture! I used different brushes for different effect. Light effect on positive shapes in this case is critical. A few sparks on simple picture like this speak volume!
