Oh, that's so lovely! I adore those delicate roots.Also it makes me hungry for nasturtium salad.:-d
Such lovely colors, beautiful!
Gorgeous - even if it didn't scan well, I like how the orange offsets the green.
Beautiful. I have nasturtiums in my garden-the blooms are sort of peppery, yummy in salads.
Very pretty. I agree with Curious Art, nice roots!
Didn't realize you had 'scientific illustration' days and very happy to discover as much. Rather hope you intend to post a few more of these.
I knew you had this kind of work in your portfolio, yet I'm still amazed at the range of your talent. Of course, I have a thing for botanicals, and this is exquisite. Do you ever do this kind of work anymore? You seem to be having so much fun with your wonderful current work, so whimsical and "anatomical" instead of "botanical"!
If this didn't scan well then the piece must absolutely awesome. I think this is absolutely beautiful. I love your work!
Beautiful work, indeed, but.....hmmmm It is a herbaceous ANNUAL plant ( small detail) . :DBTW, this year I have got one plant with very dark red flowers - never have seen before, rest is yellowish or orange !!!
Hello Elizabeth:As with all talented and creative people, you have the ability continually to surprise. And here you do so with this absolutely delightful and beautifully painted botanical drawing which is a joy to look at. A completely different, and equally interesting, side to your work.
This is so beautiful! We see another amazing edition to your talent! :)
Lovely! So delicate and detailed...
An orange nasturtium, just like the ones climbing up on a wall in my garden, ably assisted by a the framework provided by a deep red rose.
Art is jok: Duly noted and corrected. I am, admittedly, not a gardener (or a botanist)! I just know these lovlies appear year after year in my yard...making them perennial favorites :)
Ha, annual or perennial = your Tropaeolum is beautiful! :D
beautiful - i so admire your talent!
Lovely. You must have had great patience to paint this.btw I wouldn't have unframed it either :)
A piece of work worthy of The Royal Society’s most revered flora & fauna historical archives, I’m quite sure. A beautiful, mildly peppery, perfectly edible, herbaceous plant that would dignify any fine dining table.In cheffy/haute cuisine circles, this particular nasturtium species is often referred to as ‘Monks Cress’. I always take my Big Mac Half Pounder & Fries with a side order of Monks Cress & Goats Cheese Salad. Makes their plastic tables look so much more chic and exciting too dwarling! Absolutely fab!!
Great work! Congratulations.
Really beautiful illustration Liz!
This is completely gorgeous. Beautiful work!
Ce sont de magnifiques "Capucines" in french
WOW!!!!!! This is amazing!!!! I am speachless... Plus all the people above said in their comments everything that I wanted to say. So I will just agree with everybody else!!!

I never know the best way to respond to comments...I try to, individually, when I can--but often it's "no-reply blogger." At any rate, thanks to every one of you for all of the kind comments. You guys are the wind beneath my wings :) !
Really Gorgeous Elizabeth.... you are so very talented!
Ditto on all the comments above. Lovely! The shadows from the scan gives it an old world look.

This is very beautiful:)
Great to see another of your styles, beautiful illustration.
Absolutely beautiful Elizabeth!
Very beautiful Elizabeth Rose! Love the colors and contrasts. :o)
I was so happy to read that you have this framed...it's so pretty. Nasturtiums just say 'summer garden'...do you grow any?xo J~
It looks great! That is one thing I'd like to learn one day: botanical illustration.
I truly appreciate your comments.I try and reply, so be sure and come back!
