This year I headed to Mexico for my sun fix which means that my plant of the month is a tropical Ixora.
These are several shots of the Ixora which I managed to scoop just before the gardener trimmed off all the ‘scruffy’ flowers.
A chalk pastel/watercolour sketch.Some black and white pencil/pastel/ink sketches of the ixora plant combined with dancers, made in preparation for lithography prints.
The two lithography prints, printed off of the same litho stone with changes made to the surface.
A chalk pastel of the design – I had really wanted to do it in colour but was still a beginner printer and colour printing takes a lot more experience.
Two acrylic paintings on paper, the first of the same image, the second where I moved on…
