Succulents WIP

I am a sucker for beautiful succulent arrangements and came across the coral succulent garden by Philip Withers. It is so heart-stoppingly-gorgeous!!! I would love love love to have a garden like that in the front yard but I can't imagine what effect it would have on my bank account. I settled for something that costs much less but would look just as good... hopefully.

Doesn't look too bad if I do say so myself

This has been in the works since last year. It started out as a detailed pencil sketch on A4, which I inked, scanned, then blew up by 800% for printing. I then traced the print onto an A1 sized watercolour paper, which required a lightbox for the details to come through for tracing. Can't wait to paint it!
