Botanical illustration | Illustraciencia

April, 2020

Illustraciencia is a project born in 2009, supervised by Miquel Baidal Crespo, with the purpose of publishing and rewarding the botanical illustration and nature.

I have collaborated with them in one of their projects.

Here you can see an study for the orchid, with some details of the center of the flower.

In this illustration the white carnation is the protagonist. You can see the sizes of the flower in detail and the beautiful ripples in the center of the flower.

This is a general view of Vuylstekeara, a type of Orchid. 

The movement of the butterfly is delicate.

You can see this sequence and take notice how the color of the wings change. In the outer side the color is brighter and inside the color degrades from yellow to gray.

This magical flower is a Queen of the night.

Here we have to compare an original picture to our illustration and play with some differences.
