Still drawing

I’m getting close to finishing up preliminary drawings for my 2016 summer Burren wildflower series. Also getting ready this week for some faculty input to see where I stand on compositions, a critical stage in any botanical plate. As fond as I am of the drawing part of this, I’m beginning to think color—and the amount of color work to come! Yikes!

Anyway, clockwise from upper left: Devil’s-Bit Scabious; Oxeye Daisy; Rock Samphire (in progress); Maidenhair Spleenwort; and a redo of the famous Spring Gentian. They all are interesting stories, which I hope to tell in due time.
