How to draw lotus

A lotus is a beautiful flower that grows mostly in water. The flower has never been too precious but then fanatical Buddhists decided that Buddha is sitting in the lotus position. It sounds crazy but nevertheless there is some similarity. The flower itself is fine with such use of the name as there is no other way for it to become popular.

  • Its root is considered a delicacy.
  • Rosary is made of the seeds of this flower and perhaps this is the only quality product from the Far East.
  • The lotus position is quite comfortable especially if you have no chair and Buddha was keenly aware of it.

How to draw a snowdrop step by step

After a long and cold winter, thanks to the endless movement of the sun, the spring comes – the time when the earth eats the snow and when every living thing starts to bloom. It becomes clear that the world was created in spring, as the ends of the world are usually planned for winter. It’s time for us to learn to draw the wonderful rebirth of nature. But it’s not so easy to imagine how to draw spring. Snowdrop is the symbol of spring, so we will draw it.

How to draw a snowdrop

Spring is one of 4 seasons of the year. Theoretically it starts when winter ends, but actually it’s a personal matter and it can happen any time you wish. Usually the two things tell us about the coming of spring: snowdrops and March. The flowers appear always in spring and expose themselves to risk to be picked and to be given to someone. March is known for the imbalance between men and women, when women get total power for one day – the 8th of March. On that day they rule the world and determine its fate. Usually it has frustrating results that’s why for a balance between good and bad we celebrate 24th of February, the men’s day. According to the historical data, most of wars started in spring, because of the easy excitement of soldiers. We can also observe high feline activity. Everything ends on the 31 of May.

We can expect a lot of twists and turns in spring:

  • Every spring is divided in 17 moments, according to the movie;
  • Carp allows to be caught only in spring;
  • In Geneva the spring starts when the main chestnut tree is in blossom. And if it doesn’t – there will be no spring.
  • In China, the spring traditions are even more funny. In the beginning of spring they boil eggs in the urine of young boys. After they eat them and claim that they smell like spring. I can only imagine that smell!
  • The 1st of April is all fool’s day. But I think that every day some fool celebrates his day.
