These tulips glow vibrant red in the sunshine. I loved painting them and they have so much character!
The bulbs are wonderful too.
Tulipa 'Rococo' bulbs
This is one of my study plants done in coloured pencils and a young plant in graphite.
I am studying the Liliaceae family for my final year on the Distance Learning Diploma in Botanical Illustration at Edinburgh Botanic Garden. This is not my study plant but I have been looking at plants in the same family out of interest. Here the different stages of growth are shown including the bulb.
Again, not my study plant , but I just had to draw the bulb of this lily. It is fabulous!
Lilium Black Beauty
The illustration here is done in coloured pencils for a change.
