Posers

I keep walking past a cluster of Aloe vera plants on my way to the mailbox and have been meaning to draw their very cool shape. They are plants that always seem to be posing. I did this quick sketch when I got home. Simple ... but that's the kind of plant they are.

Not so long ago I've sketched one.

This is lovely. You've achieved beautiful color variations and gradations.

Joan, you do beautiful work. You do such a nice job with all of the mediums you use that I don't think you should limit yourself to just one. Really great stuff!

Thanks hfm, I looked for them but couldn't find the drawing. :( Any hints?

Lynn - Mahalo! I'm having fun with watercolors.

Elizabeth - Thanks much! I do like to bounce between media. Thanks for the tip, I'll keep on doing what I love.

Ronell! Thanks always for your encouraging words. :)

Thanks Tracy. We have a bunch of different plants that line our driveway. We have them because they're good for burns ... just rub it on a burn and voila!
