Botanical Sketches #36 - Heliconia

Today's Botanical Sketch is the Heliconia, also known as False Bird of Paradise, Lobster Claws or Wild Plantains.  They are tropical, but grown for florists and landscape arts.  They require lots of sun, water and rich soil.
I used colored pencils on top of a monoprinted page to make the sketch.
