A simple fountain pen ink drawing with watercolor washes of red, blue and green.

Watercolor Sketch of potted Aloe plant

My focus was on using a limited palette with variations only in the aloe vera plant.  The variations of green were based on creating a pattern of light and dark values as well as warm and cooler greens to play against the blue background and the clay pot.  The only variation in the pot is the darker value of the inside of the pot as seen through the aloe leaves.

Drawn and painted in an old sketchbook on very pulpy paper.
