I did this in my studio a couple of years ago referencing a few flowers in a vase I'd set up. Working rather slowly, the stems just couldn't survive my plodding through revision after revision and I didn't (for whatever reason) choose to replace them. As they began to droop I began to abstract or at least that's how I recall it.
