Leaves and Honesty

The sketchbook challenge - Into the woods.
Background paper - oil pastels, wax crayons, metallic crayons, caran d'ache water soluble crayons, brusho inks.
Layered envelopes with real plants [painted] trapped under the envelope window, stitching.

I have some honesty plants in my garden and I thought this particular specimen looked more colourful than normal, the seed pods are tinged with pink.

  1. Nice work. I like your use of the envelope windows, and am sure we will see those Honesty plants in your work one day.

    1. I have used honesty plants in my work previously and I was wondering what to do with these as they were a bit different, but they are changing colour now and looking more like they usually do - unfortunately.
