December : Spoonflower (part one)

The Phlox must confess herself to be an avid, if sadly amateur, painter. Her favorite medium is watercolor and pencil but can also be seen at work with gauche or a pen; her favorite subject, nature, but what must take a close second…

Gauche and Pencil

Musical Instruments! 

Watercolor and Pencil

As the devoted reader will remember, The Phlox has written an entire novel on the subject of musicians, and thus it will not come as a surprise that she is one of that disastrous number herself. Having doodled stringed instruments in the margin of her notes somewhat pathologically for some time, she finally took to formalities, trying to maximize her minimal skill. 

Done with a Calligraphy Ink Pen

Bonus! Funny musical botanical drawings!

Inspired by the Nonsense Botany Illustrations of the much-admired Edward Lear…

Drawn by Edward Lear, not the Phlox 😉
