The Yellow Flowers of Ligularia, August’s Plant of the Month

The Ligularia dentata with its yellow daisy-like flowers and large leaves ranging from dark green to purple with burgundy stems is my choice for August’s Plant of the Month.

Out with a friend last week I spent at least a half-hour sketching which was followed by at least another hour painting this image.watercolour painting of the large Ligularia leavesThis is the dilemma for the modern day artist: accessibility of apps that turn hours of work into mere seconds. Here are a few Waterlogue app versions of the same plant I was sketching, done while I was still pondering which colour to to use and how to mix it!Ligularia plant with large leaves and yellow daisy-like flowers in the photo app WaterlogueLigularia plant with large leaves and yellow daisy-like flowers in the photo app WaterlogueLigularia plant with large leaves and yellow daisy-like flowers in the photo app WaterlogueLigularia plant with large leaves and yellow daisy-like flowers in the photo app Waterlogue
