Pulled these up from my backyard and rinsed the roots so I could see them clearly. I love drawing roots and hairy stems.
I wish I owned this cactus plant, but unfortunately I do not. This drawing was done from a picture I found.
The first is my favorite, painted with blue and white gouache. The second is a watercolor painting of the same bunch of flowers. The third is also blue gouache, I think. I like the contrast between the massive bulb and the skinny little roots.
