Echeveria Succulent Plant Drawing

Trying to find a naturally green flower to draw for week two's Summer of Color theme, Mint Chocolate Chip, was tough. So I didn't. Instead I drew an echeveria secunda, a succulent plant whose shape does very much resemble a rose.

Echeveria Plant Drawing
Echeveria plant drawing is colored with Prismacolor pencils onto ACEO sized Strathmore Vellum Bristol Paper.

Colored pencil art is also linked up with A Pinteresting Party, Crafty Saturday Party, Paint Party Friday, Thursday Favorite Things, What You Doing Wednesday, Whimsy Wednesday and {wow me} Wednesday.

  10. Dang it! Why can I not see your beautiful flower drawings?! I saw the lily on facebook eventually but I get a skinny white box instead of your latest creation. If there's another place to check it out, would you share a link?

  15. Beautiful! I'm a big fan of succulents, but I manage to kill them regardless of how easy they are supposed to be to manage. I probably should switch to looking at beautiful drawings like yours instead!

  22. It does make me think of mint chocolate--and lovely flower. I would have thought it was a rose. Not sure I've ever seen any echeveria, or if I did, I probably just thought I was looking at a rose!
