Since I was a kid, this tender plant has always struck me as being magical, like water lily pads floating on land. The leaves are water epellant, so when there is moisture, it collects on the surface of the leaves like jewels.
This is me having a nice quiet night of flower drawing. You can eat the flowers and suck honey out of them. Awesome.
When I look at the above print being developed I see an art nouveau quality. Even though in real life the blooms can be near-flourecent, I'm working with a softer pallet for this series.
