Spices are treasures harvested from some of my favorite plants.
When it came to illustrating the Tropical Spice Garden, I knew I couldn't pass up the opportunity to dedicate a special post to these aromatic wonders. This is why I had to stop a little bit longer in Penang's Tropical heaven, just to dive deeper into the Spice World.
Now close your eyes and take a deep breath. Recall the first time you caught the scent of peppercorn, curry, cinnamon and all those delightful fragrances, and let's see how spices can inspired illustration.
MY MUST-HAVE LIST FOR THIS ILLUSTRATION
Illustrating spice plants with colourful gouache
Including a famous and recognizable focus point of the Tropical Spice Garden : The Blue Door
Designing two magazine articles with illustrations :
one about the Tropical Spice Garden
one to inspire travelers, and introduce them to the world of spices in certain gardens across Southeast Asia.
MY FINAL PROJECT
Looking forward to our next destination on the Gardens & Parks Illustration World Tour. See you soon!
