Colour from the season - Fern green

Sorry colour fans - just green, in fact two greens and two fairly nondescript greens at that. So if this doesn't interest you then no need to look any further at this post! If however, you might like to marvel at the elegant form of a Royal fern (as common as muck here in Devon), as well as the patience it's taken to draw, not once but many times over, then you might want to take a further peek!

I have ambitious plans for these drawings, so I've scanned all stages of their development, from pencil, to ink, to colour, but don't hold your breath, it may take some time...

au naturel...

...and just perfect for the next pattern post (mirrored block repeat)?

(Drawn listening to the excellent album 'Tramp' by Sharon Van Etten -  reflective video of the track Leonard here).
