Chive blossom sketch

Who knew chives could be so pretty? 🙂 Our neighbors have a bunch of chives in their flower bed and they have a beautiful, light purple flower. When you clip the stem off, you can clearly smell the oniony scent of chives.

The bloom consists of a cluster of small, individual blossoms that together look similar to a thistle. Lots of detail to draw each one, so I settled for a looser interpretation to get the idea across.

  1. Nice studies Carol. It is interesting to draw all the little parts of a plant, really makes you look at things. I like seeing a whole page of studies like this, in the style of the old fashioned botanical drawings.
