Protea – Postcards for the Lunch Bag

Artwork-Gouache on Hahnemühle hot press ‘The Collection’ Watercolor paper.

Did you know that the protea dates back about 300 million years, and are considered to be one of the oldest families of flowering plants on the planet?

Based off one of the exercises in ‘Painting Florals with Gouache’ by Vidhi Khandelwal. I added a couple of flowers to the two in her tutorial. You can find out more about this book here.
