Shower Fittings from the Lake

Travelling in Japan last September the fretwork circles of lotus root, fried to thin crispness, pickled pink or blanched white with the crunch abiding, and sometimes trimmed to read as a flower frequented many meals.  Back in Sydney the lotus I've found lately  is the fresh  seed pods, with theirTriffid like stems, in the flower section of the market. I drew these twice, the first time with Winsor & Newton Emerald Green drawing ink,  ( a detail below) - those green horizontals are supposed to the glass louvres, and didn't work. Then I was given new water colour crayons for my birthday, hence the crayola-eque sketch above.
