Botanical Illustration

When I went to the Philadelphia Flower Show I was really impressed by the Philadelphia Society of Botanical Illustrators . They had such lovely work on display, lots of intricate and unusual drawings. So when I came home I decided to try my hand at it. Here is a little chestnut hull that I found on a recent walk through a park.
I think I may do more of these drawings and perhaps take one of the classes offered through the PSBI. The work really combines my love of painting and nature in a nice way because I get to observe and create.

I used watercolors and color pencils in this little painting.
