Cut-leaf Geranium

Welcome to another sketchbook process video lesson! In this lesson I am showing you how to create the page below of botanical studies featuring a cut-leaf geranium.  I will be showing you the process I go through to find inspiration and reference material and how I turn it into a botanical style sketchbook study, without taking hours to complete it. 

This is the website I often use for plant ID and to find pictures of the plants I paint at all different stages in their lifecycles.

Here is direct a link to Geranium dissectum
