Week 3 of 52 Weeks of Nature Art was all about Succulents! Such beautiful natural mandalas, it was fun to explore the different kinds at my local garden center and on Pinterest.
First of all, I had fun capturing all the gorgeous lines and shapes found in the succulents I brought home from the garden center.
Adding some bright green watercolor to my sketchbook page really helped make my drawings ‘pop’.
And I even created a lovely coloring page for a future book project!
I decided to really spend time being patient with my watercolors! (a big learning curve for me at the moment) to capture the beautiful colors in one of the succulents.
So amazing to really look at the succulent and see all the beautiful colors reflected such as purples, greens and reds.
Then finally a succulent mandala in watercolor greens and yellows.
