Monster Challenge


While I am not a member of illustration friday group I did decide to do a monster...Monsterosa deliciousa philodendron...just thought I would get out the watercolors and paint a picture of the one I have had for how many years?? Thirty...I think..I tried to scratch the veining and the paper was too damp and being impatient i decided to cheat and used colored pencils for the veining... bytw first watercolor in goodness knows how many years...

This is a lovely response to painting a "monster"!! I like the idea of using colored pencils to make the lighter, smaller veins! I'm going to try that! Thanks for posting!

These leaves have a nice "shine" to them.
