Creeper Plant

Creeping Plant Sketch © Evelyn Howard 2010

When I was in Malaysia 2 years ago, I spotted this creeper plant on the ground. It seemed to go on and on, so I decided to zoom in and photograph just a little section (below). I love the contrast between the smooth leaves and the textured gravel.

The photo came in handy when I was looking for a subject to draw this weekend. My interpretation of the leaves against the rough background is shown above, completed in watercolour. It was a fun exercise.

Hope you have a great week.

Very cool! It almost looks like a kind of clover! Wonder if there would be any lucky 4-leafed sections?

Oh crminiee, Evelyn! I can't believe how far back I had to scroll to catch up with you! Blame a hectic week. But I see you've had a good week of posts! I really like your white on brown interpretation of the green creeper. Nice!
