2018, 10 1/4 x 10 inches, colored pencils, graphite pencils and pastels. Stages of Mayapple flower buds are drawn with overlapping and transparent stems and leaves in this detail from ‘Mayapple Woodland’. Shapes are a dominant visual element but are subtly executed. Christmas fern is illustrated in the background and fronds are repeated to form a pattern. Lines are used to accentuate flower shapes rather than delineate flower form. Pastel colors fill the shapes and suggest the Spring season.
