Hello everyone, this is my first guest post in a mini series about botanical beauties and the many ways they are 'illustrated'.
Today I've chosen several striking images that have been created in a variety of ways, from original watercolour paintings and digital illustration to prints of original pencil drawings. Botanical/floral designs are very popular at the moment, especially with this time of year too, so I thought it would be fun to show you some inexpensive art that has these themes.
It's variety that I will be focusing on in these posts and these artists from Etsy have many more floral delights for you to find in their shops.
I hope you enjoyed this post, my next post will be about photographic botanical beauties!
