Mandrake ‘Mermaid II’, India ink, 2017

28 Jul

Another ‘mermaid’, based on a living root of Mandragora officinarum, which I have grown from seed. I enjoyed creating this drawing in the solitude of my office-atelier, windows open and rain pouring outside. I also felt it flows nicely with the texture of the paper. It’s a beautiful feeling for the artist when all flows and falls into place naturally. This drawing is now on its way to Spain, along with the actual plant. Medium: India ink on coffee stained paper, infused with extracts of wormwood and mandrake, 2017 (original sold)
