Potted plants illustrations

I love to capture nature and it’s characteristics. These three potted plants show each leave, branch and flower being individual, the pen and ink lets me capture this perfectly as it can create many different types of mark. Each individual and sometimes unpredictable but this makes it pair well when drawing nature as nature is also unpredictable, changing and full of different textures, shapes. The areas left white, bring energy, light and show the constant grow and change of nature.

The three plants are being grown in very different pots; the pot’s characteristics add to the plant’s character and bring variation and a sense of scale to the illustration.
