My botanical renderings are not drawings of plant specimens as seen in scientific books, rather, they are renderings of plants as seen
through with the eye of an artist. I can look at the ground I can see the shapes, light and shadows. I do not draw the entire location. I focus on a small portion of the scene and what makes that interesting. Whether that be the individual leaf, flower, or snapshot of the ground I bring the details to life. In my drawings, I focus on achieving realism and try to put in as much detail as possible. I want the viewer to look and then get lost in the scene as if they were standing in it. I have found that life truly is, in the details.
