African Violet

My friend Anna has a couple of African violet plants.  When they are in bloom I try to do a sketch or a painting of them, since I can't seem to grow those myself.  I don't think I get enough light in my house.  I don't think I've ever sketched the purple one before, but I love the contrast of the purple and the greens. 


  1. I think this is gorgeous, Michelle! Love the addition of the ink and purples and greens are one of my favorite color combinations!

  2. This is lovely!! I like the contrast of the purple against the green and that bit of variation with the touch of rose in the top petals.
