St. John's Wort - Dried Seed Capsule

Max's first finished watercolour! Months in the making, she started with a very carefully observed drawing... as you can see below.

Max made this detailed ink drawing about 6 times larger than life. The subject itself measures only about 1-1.5 inches in diameter and was drawn entirely while looking through a magnifying glass. 

She has started work on a second drawing of the same plant, another seed capsule but of a different specimen at an earlier stage, before the opening of the central seed pod. 
Stay tuned...
