Flower Spectrum – Purple and Black Auricula

I’ve recently discovered the Auricula… I guess I always had seen them around but never given them a REALLY close look. I’ve decided they represent the perfect essence of a Spring flower. Small, elegant, neat florets clustered together overlapping slightly. A vast spectrum of colours and combinations including the most graphic black and white…these flowers were made to be drawn. Photographed here on a graphic African batik fabric they seem to sing for my attention.

I’ve also started Pinterest for anyone who’s curious… a broader, quicker platform for all that inspires me.
