Cacti, agave and succulentsPosted: April 17, 2022
I took my sketchbook and pen out for a walk in Santa Barbara, and along the way I drew the plants in front of the El Zapato house on Garden Street. It’s liberating to carry such a light kit because I can be very mobile and work standing up. The plants in front of the house are really comical, and a bit reminiscent of something from Dr. Seuss’s imagination. I added colour back at the hotel, and even though I did take reference photos, in a drawing like this, does it really matter if the colours are naturalistic? I think not.
