Botanical Collage

I created en plein air pencil sketches of plants around Victoria, BC in parks and
gardens. Sitting and drawing the plants was very healing and meditative. I
brought the pencil sketches back to my studio and added colour and collage,
sometimes adding ruled lines with a mini ruler to create imagined mini utopias
inside these plant spaces.

2016, mixed media (pencil, black pen, watercolour, pencil crayon, India ink) and
collage on paper, 12″x18″
