Camellia possesses the intrinsic quality of mass and color. For a beginner, it's quite difficult to handle in an arrangement. I bought one bunch of camellia for my ikebana class, but I didn't have a chance for students to use. This is the study I did after students left my studio. Grapevines here form lines. In this sense, this arrangement is complete with line, mass, and color.
By the way, the oil painting is my first color study I made 10 years ago.
