A commission I did a while back, before my right wrist decided to develop tendinitis. It's a flower design I painted with watercolour paints, for a sympathy/condolence card.
The flowers are known as purple Foxglove, a strand of highly poisonous Digitalis species. The reason I went for these flowers specifically is because of two things really. Even though deadly in it's untreated form, small doses of the Digitalis poison is known to be used in medicines which treat hearth problems. The design for the card was commissioned by a pharmacy, and I found the connection between the plant, it's properties and the pharmacy striking enough to use in this design. I added the drop-shadow digitally, at the request of the commissioner.
I don't often work with realism, so I'm proud at how this turned out!
