Art Monday: Seed Fossil Flax Flower

A detail view of one of the underlying drawings from my project, Sowing Seeds & Fossils.

The text written on drafting film in the image below says,
a. Nutrient- rich shell yields dark oil when pressed.
b. Flowers have ammolite-sheen on stalks, esp. at base.
c. Pleasing to my eye. I hope transfer
works onto pumice.
d. Observed to crawl blindly up the sides of buildings to eavestroughs.

You can see the project and all it's layers here.

Thats quite a detailed drawing, but a photograph would have been more useful.

Thanks DeMo!
Thanks xalilavsxionu!

CB Detective, this was for a drawing class, so a photo would not have been as useful in its original purpose.

Photos also carry the hand of the artist, but often in a more hidden way. I like the filter the brain-hand-pencil give to the objects we see and imagine.

Thanks for checking it out!
