Botanical Art Drawings – Centaurea Series

I made these drawings during my move from Cluj to Hunedoara last fall. For a few days I lived in an empty room with only a mattress on the floor. I kept out of the boxes some books and art materials (not many… paper, a charcoal, a bottle of ink, a brush and my wood pen) and, since I had nothing to do all day, I took long walks and and picked weeds, which I then drew in the evening, sitting at the kitchen counter. Those days, with a minimalist, relaxed and focused lifestyle, were probably the best I can remember.
The Centaurea bud is a study after Ruskin, the other two are drawings from life.
