Doodlewash Prompt: Leaves

Lithiops are a succulent plant with leaves that look like pebbles, camouflage so that animals won’t eat them during the droughts of Southern Africa. They are called Living Stones, although they are totally plants.

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.

  1. How fascinating! I’m always enthralled when I discover camouflage characters! It’s also why I love the sea as I do. Thanks, Sandra!

  2. You peeked my curiosity so I had to Google them. Quite strange, but interesting flowers. Job well done on yours!

  3. Now your not just one of my favorite painters….but my favorite BOTANIST! You share such fun and unusual information.
    Stunning coloration!
