I decided to go with an edible perennial for this week's topic. Thyme is probably my favorite herb. I like it for it's culinary versatility and use it often when cooking. I especially like it with potatoes as it really eccentuates the flavor.
I wanted to experiment with this illustration a bit, using graphite, rather than ink over my watercolor washes. I like the subtlety that the medium gives compared to ink. I think I'll experiment more with using pencil with watercolors.
For those interested, I also included a still video of my illustrative process.
