Monstera #1


Monstera deliciosa is a beautiful, leafy, large green, tangly plant, with these large, deep green, Swiss cheese leaves that first split and form oblong holes and then full inlets. This small series of paintings followed our Monstera over a few days.

This original painting is 4" x 11", with hand torn, deckled edges. I had several fragments of old cyanotypes printed on a lovely thick cotton paper, and I've reused those fragments here by gessoing over the paper (so there's still a hint of the cyanotype's blue that shows through), and then drew with pencil and finished with watercolor.
