Echeveria is a semi-desert plant known for its succulent leaves. Part of a series of illustrations focused on tropical flora, the technique employed is meant to convey the more notable aspects of the plant. As such a predominantly monochromatic colour scheme was preferred to visualize only the leaves while ignoring the pot, soil etc. The technique also signifies the texture of the leaves as smooth and flawless. Designs such as these can be used as decorative pieces for bathrooms, living rooms or a small nook area in a house/office setting.
