Illustration Friday: Cultivate

I said I'd do another picture for Illustration Friday didn't I? Well here it is. I had to be very disciplined (for me!) and try to not colour it in!
I've been doing a spot of cultivation myself this weekend. My seeds are beginning to sprout.

I've planted some more too...


We've been so lucky this weekend with the weather, so warm and mild. The trees are beginning to bud, with the promise of their green finery to come.
Still very beautiful to look at this time of year, with the raw textures. And the odd crocodile.
Ok it's a branch...but it could be a crocodile.
It could!

Excellent job sticking with black and white (though I can see from the photos you posted how much you love color). The patterns on the leaves are what make the drawing, and if you'd put color in, that would take away from that pattern. It's a charming and lovely drawing!

Hi Jessie,
I love your fun illustration and it looks striking in black and white. I really like the way your lady looks all modest standing behind the huge plant! :-)
It is wonderful that spring is really here now. The warmer weather is great!
Have a good weekend planting and enjoy the sun.
Jo. xx
