floral investigations

calotropis procera . 2011

lawsonia inermis, ophioglossum polyphyllum & cistanche spp. . 2011

for a new project i'm working on, i've decided to start researching the vast plant world that's found in the arabian peninsula. even though i live in a desert, i've found out that there are more than just palm trees that grow here, adapting to a desert environment. it's been really interesting reading about the plant world. i've decided to sketch out some of the plants i found interesting, in it's simplest, geometric form. hopefully these sketches will develop into something quite interesting i have in mind. more updates to follow as the project progresses...
