Window basil

I had to take photos for some interp signs today, and intended to make sketches while I was out and about.

Didn't happen.

So now it's dark and I still want to draw. Basil in the kitchen window planters. Line drawing first.

Followed by a little color. One of these days I'm going to find a paper that's good for drawing AND for painting. This ain't it.

I tried to work quickly... 45 minutes, start to post.


  1. Nicely done! I like the brown mottling on the bottom leaf and the variation in the color.

  2. your drawings are so good even without the addition of colour. it reminds me of ellsworth kelley's plant drawings.

  3. Thank you both! Priya, I wasn't familiar with the Kelly drawings, so went to check them out. Thanks for the heads up. I found a link to an exhibition last year: http://www.axa-art.com/gallery/2006-06/index.html
