Christmas botanical illustrations


I’ve not been working this week, it’s the holidays.  There are five illustrations outstanding for the Whipsnade Zoo commission, but the deadline isn’t for a fortnight so I’ll have plenty of time to complete them ahead of schedule.

Instead, I’ve assembled a variety of seasonal illustrations, done over the years.

Christmas plants

There are lots of different plants associated with this season; and all are rather interesting to paint.  They have tough leaves, but the berries can make them tempting subject matter.

Here’s some holly

and some ivy.

Two images of mistletoe,

A sprig of silver fir

Christmas birds

and a robin (not in a silly festive hat this time).

I hope everyone has a very happy holiday, and a wonderful new year.

Here are some other festive blogs; Christmas greenery , Botanical illustration and xmas decorations, and a step by step holly leaf.
