2011 Garden Round-Up {illustration}

Here are the twelve Water-wise garden illustrations I did last year. I thought I would put them all together and in order in one place to see how they evolved. One major change I noticed was the use of black in the first two. I guess once I went without black in the March illustration, it never really came back. I also feel like the illustrations got more complex as time when on - I started layering the colors on top of each other and rendering the plants in more detail. If I had to choose, my two favorites are March and April.  If you have a moment, tell me which one is your favorite.

Below, I've added the first two Garden illustration for this year. Can't wait to see where this new series leads me...
