Il noble signore, l'orchidea

"The Four Gentlemen, also called the Four Noble Ones, in Chinese art refers to four plants: the orchid, the bamboo, the chrysanthemum, and the plum blossom. The term compares the four plants to Confucianist junzi, or "gentlemen". They are most typically depicted in traditional ink and wash painting and they belong to the category of bird-and-flower painting in Chinese art." Wikipedia

I made the second pic on 2014 and I decided now to draw her again in my current style. Is funny how I like some details from the older pic but also like some details from the newer.
