My Windowsill

Some sketches of succulents and cacti in my windowsill. I enjoyed the different forms, textures and colours and have tried to make a collage of them.

Winter Rose (Helleborus)

Mid-winter and the winter roses are flowering. I picked a few for a vase and sketched them, then put on some water colour.

Succulent

I experimented with incorporating the colours in the hand-made paper into the painting of a flowering succulent.

Orchid

I was given an orchid stem and experimented with it. I had made some paper and wanted to try to use it for painting. It was an interesting experience!

Apple, Pears and Shells

I liked how the colours of the apple, pears, shells and paper harmonised. I kept them in a circle as a pattern and drew them through each other. Then I worked them up with graphitint and pastel pencils, and outlined them with a pen.
