Jessica Ballantyne's Painting a day for 30 Days - Day #17

Study of Brugmansia

For this daily painting I decided to do a study of one of my favorite flowers, Brugmansia, or "Angels Trumpets". These are commonly mistaken for Datura or " Moon Flowers" although they are just as poisonous! I am including these flowers in a painted surfboard I am working on and I wanted to practice the flowers before attempting them in oils. So here is my painting a day for day 17, a study of Brugmansia amongst dripping globules. Drawn in Inktense pencils (water soluble) on water colour paper:
