Journal Page Purple Hollyhock (2)

I had some more photos of the hollyhocks we used to have in the garden and couldn't resist drawing this beauty. I should do them on better paper, they look pretty washed out in this journal.
6x9" on handmade paper. Watercolor pencils and sepia ink.

Gorgeous! I haven't seen a hollyhock in years. I was about 5 when out elderly next door neighbor taught me how to make dolls from hollyhocks. I still remember that kind lady and how she always made cookies for me.
