Common Blue Violet
Paper Size- 5x7 inches
This wild violet is hand printed with professional quality inks on handmade Lokta paper from Nepal.
These little purply-blue violets always pop up in the grass by the nearby church. They're so small and delicate you don't even see them until you're walking overtop of them.
I picked one and put it in a little vial of water so I could draw it from life. As I was sketching them, I realized how tangled and somewhat chaotic they are. I tried to capture the wildness of the stems and leaves along with the delicateness of the flowers.
