Phytocrene palmata botanical illustration is done

Here it is my major work of once a year!
The painting is more graceful and melancholy compared to the one of P. macrophylla.  The inflorescence is longer, but paler with less details.
I still have a small landscape scene of Kebun Raya Bogor with P. macrophylla as subject to paint.  But I think I will start to think about the next design of batik for Batik Komar to make.  It is going to be more different than the last one which is more like painting.  This one, I wanted to have it more like an overall pattern with simple colours, so more universal appeal to Indonesians.

wagashi wagashi

Lovely Sweets from Japan!

new painting of Indonesian theme

I am working on my major botanical illustration for the year.  But on the side, I am still painting some batik design just to relax myself.  Here is one called Kraton Surakarta in progress.  The background will be a mirror.  The batik kain is a design of traditional classic batik motif of Naga and Parang but in north coast's brilliant colours.
