All these plants I keep seeing! How lovely! You are getting quite the garden. So far I have done nothing this year – looking at these chives is giving me the urge to go get some for my balcony. ;)

Cindy D. disse...

Wow, so many lovely and delicate herbs. The drawing and painting style is great! Wonderful chives and great perspective on the climbing strawberries.

Jen and Cindy, thank you very much.

Jen, I don't have a really big balcony, but most plants, specially aromatic, are quite easy to have in hight, in some shelves.
Let me know if your balcony starts to "grow" ehehe :D

Cindy, i'm also enjoying a lot doing this series :)

Wow! You sure kow your way in watercolours. All of your plants and herbs are so pretty, I love them all!

Koosje, now that i think about it, watercolours were my favourite medium before college. During college i hardly used it ... maybe a few times in draw and human figure classes, but not that much. And i do really like this medium. Thanks for your comment. :)

Ó minha fiel comentadora! Estou em falta para contigo, actualizas muito mais o teu blog que eu e eu só venho ver o teu de x em quando... Mas amo de paixão as tuas ilustrações! Já pensaste vender no etsy? Há ppl a vender reproduções em papel de aguarela, etc. :)

Estás a coleccionar...

Mardi Speth disse...

Hi Fados. I like how you draw and paint your plants ... leaving some areas with just the line drawing and no color makes for a really interesting painting!

Richard Ewing disse...

I agree with Mardi, I have always liked the interplay between line and color, you do it simply and cleanly.
nice.

Patrícia, eu gosto muito de visitar as tuas criações. Um motivo de orgulho, sem dúvida! :)

Elizabeth, Rainbow, Mardi and Richard, thank you for stopping by and comment. I'm also a fan of unfinished look draws.

Love, love, love this! Your work so nicely mirrors the delicateness of the chives! Gorgeous.

Thank you Suzanne :)
Before i did the chives i was a bit afraid, due how confusing this plant can be! The most difficult part was to select which parts to draw.
