Frankenstein’s Zinnia

Tried for a green zinnia with groovy leaves and got this.  Did a fountain pen rendering of one of our zinnias late in the year for a thank-you illustration for customers.  Decided it was too big to be a freebie and so drew some background leaves in from another picture, applied then watercolor and ink wash.   Thought the flower was cool enough to be a Frankenstein’s Monster and not merely a zombie.

10 x 6.86 inches, ink, watercolor and ink wash; from 2018.  Print is a matted, mounted,  signed 600 dpi color print on acid-free white cardstock with half-inch borders.  Limited edition run of fifty.  I only use permanent, pigment-based HP inks which meet the ISO 11798 fade-resistance standard.
