botanicals

I love walking along a woodland trail and discovering native plants.  I may have seen this plant over the years in similar habitats, but each time there is a sense of discovery.

As I sit down to draw a plant, I try to be present with how it is built and moves in space.  What lines and color  describe it?  It is a process of discovery as I try to capture a sense of this plant.  If I am outside drawing from life I might see the insects it depends upon in its native habitat.
