The Elephant Foot

Elephants Foot

Title: “The Elephant’s Foot”
Medium: Pencil, Digital Painting, 2011

This one is dedicated to my husband whose favorite plant as of late has been the “Elephant’s Foot.” It’s the gorgeous dioscorea elephantipes caudiciform plant with an awesome tortoise shell shaped root. I don’t believe they grow to the size as I have depicted here, but the largest I’ve ever seen is about 3′ round.

    My husband has a penchant for working on plants and bonsai so he spends a lot of time on botanical studies. I've combined my love for drawing the female form with the unique plant life we have at our home to create this series.
