So, I don't profess to be a fantastic illustrator or anything, but I have started dabbling in illustration. I wanted to post a photo, but my digital camera ist kaput...so I did the next best thing I could do...draw...I mounted the two plants (it was a two for one deal...bought the plant, and during repotting, found two plants, one much larger than the other). I mounted the larger plant on the main trunk of the branch, the "baby" I put toward the end. Both are doing REALLY well, with new roots on the "mother" and the plantlet has a healthy looking pseudo bulb and sending out roots all over.
The drawing is pen & ink.
Nicely done, ATester!
As classic orchids texts demonstrate, accurate drawings and paintings are as valuable as photos. Yours is a nice change of pace here!
Thank you for the compliments!
very nicely done!
that is really good! I'm very impressed as I can totally appreciate the hardwork and the skill involved... I am, alas, definitely artistically challenged
how long did it take to do?
I am impressed! Very nice!
Creative and talented! And understanding russian too eh!
I really appreciate the drawing, as I am about as artistic as a rock. But I have to ask - was your avatar photo taken by a bank surveilance camera?? And were you robbing it at the time??? You look so - frazzled??
Well, I had just finished shooting a wedding on Jay Peak in Vermont, it was originally colour film, and the lab I took my film to fried my film by processing it as colour slide. Alas, those were my first adventures with medium format photography. So, yes, I was frazzled, no I was not holding up a bank. That was a very long day. Only three shots came out of the whole wedding due to the lab's flub up. Colour slide developing on regular colour negetives have an interesting effect, but not quite the look I was going for.
