This is beautiful! I love how you captured the roundness of the basil leaves near the veins. Awesome.Carol
Lovely Basil! Just started the SBA course 9... very inspiring
Thanks for your kind comments Carol and Laura. It took ages! It's only a small drawing - life size - but it took a surprising amount of time. Laura - are you on the SBA facebook page? It's a group page where all the course students old and new support eachother. I really recommend joining. If you want to, I can let the admin people know.
Lovely drawing Jessica! One can really see the softness of basil leaves... beautiful!
Stunning leaf work Jess, well done x
This is wonderful, Jess! As Carol said, you have really captured the rounding habit of the basil leaf here and that so perfectly describes this herb. Btw, I'm finally starting the grapes drawing today...:)
