Drawings of Wildflowers (Namaqualand)
I made a number of drawings of wildflowers at Papkuilsfontein using a dipping pen some years ago. This year I found the notebook and decided to colour them with watercolor. The paper wasn’t much good, but I had fun and I quite like some of the results. They’re all of small plants. If you click on the images, you’ll be able to see them bigger in a gallery.
