At first, as I was finishing this drawing, I thought the only reason to bother archiving it at DeviantArt was to remind myself to never draw forsythia blossoms again, but on reflection there are aspects of this that I like after all.

Having previously only appreciated forsythia blossoms from afar, I'd never studied them that closely, so I was interested to see that the tiny paired leaflike structures I'd originally taken for sepals don't seem to be -- the actual flower, and hence its sepals, hang down from between them on an incredibly slender stalk.
