Lovers of houseplants know that each kind has its own unique character. From pretty pink caladiums to magnificent monsteras, Toronto-based artist Rosa F captures her own indoor jungle in her sketchbooks. Each plant illustration showcases the delicate forms, patterns, and textures of leafage that are meticulously rendered one paint stroke at a time.
“My artistic journey started when I was a child and I would redraw my favorite characters, animals, and landscapes,” Rosa reveals to My Modern Met. “I have since come a long way and my style has definitely changed.” Today, she primarily renders her illustrations using watercolor and gouache on watercolor paper. Her sketchbooks are brimming with all kinds of plant studies, each confidently capturing her chosen subjects in earthy hues.
