Festive Plants

A little out of season, here are my Christmas cards from last year! I went with simple botanical paintings, and I honestly wasn't sure how they were going to turn out as I hadn't done any botanical art in a while. In the end I was really pleased with them! The originals all went out to friends and family members as usual, but I'd like to try some different plants and flowers in this style now that I know how to do it.

The four at the bottom are my favourites from the set, I think if I had to pick one favourite it would be the Hellebore. I was so pleased with that one when I finished it!

Sketchbook Flipthrough

A friend of mine gave me this little sketchbook for Christmas last year, and I decided on a whim to try to fill the whole thing before the end of February! Unfortunately the whim hit me on the 12th of February, so I didn't quite make it, but I did finish it in only just over a month.

I'm still feeling inspired to see what I can do with cheaper pens and normal office supplies, so a lot of these are done with biros, gel pens, mini colouring pencils and so on.

(This is the best quality my poor old phone could process, please be nice to it.)
