Chinese Lantern

Chinese Lantern
Monotype On Paper
11.7 x 8.3"
     Another monotype. I found this interesting plant on a trip to Cannon Hall and thought it might make a good subject to work from. After some searching on the internet I discovered it was call Physalis alkekengi. Its more commonly know as a Chinese lantern for its colour and texture however. Anyway it made a great print which is really vibrant. I also used a better quality watercolour for this one which probably helped.
