October Challenge – Basil

By Erika Moen on October 4, 2011

For the month of October, I’m going to be doing my best to draw once a day based around the theme of (mostly) edible vegetation.

Here’s October 1st’s, Basil!

This little guy was actually a present from Vera, when she had too many. He lives on our kitchen windowsill and is making a surprisingly strong recovery after getting all sick and Matt had to cut off almost all of him. Slowly but surely, his little leaves are filling out again!

Though I reserve the right to deviate, here’s the list of plants I’m intending to sketch over the next 31 days:
