Nep Art

I've been meaning to do some nepenthes watercolour for some time now. Never tried painting nepenthes before so it was quite exciting to see whether I'll make a mess on the page :P .

The others are some sketches I done a long time ago. Please tell me what you think :D !

I like the water color. The blue background really brings out the earthy tone of the pitcher.

If I have any critique would be the arching stem kinda draws your eye away from the mouth and body of the pitcher. Perhaps next time you could go for more of an upper view to accentuate the pitcher or even a slightly side view if you want to keep the arching stem.

Those are awesome! I can really tell what each plant is without the label. I draw a little, but not particularly plants, so this is beyond me!
