Tropical Leaves





Various sketches in Moleskine

I have been back from Puerto Rico for several days but recovering from the culture shock and time change has taken its toll. Combine that with the horrific things going on in the world and I have had little heart for posting.

I didn't paint very much when I was down there, but did some sketching and took lots of photos, so I will try to create some pictures before I forget what it felt like.

Banana leaves are fun to draw, they are interesting plants too. They are the largest flowering herbaceous plant and can grow to 7.5 metres. After producing fruit they die down to the root and new "trees" grow up.
