About this piece:
Ferns of the Forest Floor
Colour pencil on 270gsm green paper
This week was all about the humble colour pencil. I wanted to test which ones I like using the most, and found Polychromos pencils to be the most smooth and easy to layer. I then decided to torture myself by embarking on an intricate and delicate A4 drawing of the NZ forest floor. Turns out there are a lot of leaves, and a lot of green! This scene features the Hound’s Tongue fern (kōwaowao, pāraharaha), Kawakawa, and some tiny ferns that I don’t know the name of… anyone know? Anyway I had a great time on this piece, it was very challenging, and it took me aaaages 🌿
I have tried to show the colour on here as close as possible to the real artwork.
It would look amazing framed!
This artwork may be used by me for cards and prints in the future.
