Hello everyone here 馃 I hope you are very well in the corner of the world where you are 馃寧鉁岋笍 surely doing wonderful and interesting things 馃憣馃槑 ... Today I am writing to show you an illustration that I made this weekend 馃帹馃枌锔忦煒嬸煉

First I tell them that I love nature 馃寘馃槏馃槉馃挀; animals 馃惐馃惗馃悽馃惀馃惁 and plants 馃尡馃尨馃尶馃尦. At home we have many, one of them is a Jamaica Flower bush 馃尦, this plant was born spontaneously in our patio, in a crack between the floor and the wall (it is not strange that here the plants grow anywhere, only a little water and voila, our land is very fertile 馃槉), the truth at first we did not know what kind of plant it was and even my sister @marylucy thought about cutting it because she thought it was a weed that was useless.

We did not cut the plant because it was growing very beautiful and we were intrigued to know what it was. We had several hypotheses, but we were not sure until it began to bloom and an aunt told us that we had a treasure, it was a mata of flower Jamaica (we call mata to plants in Venezuela), news that made us all happy 馃構馃榾馃槃

The reason for our joy was because the flower of this plant has many health benefits, in addition to being beautiful and delicious. Jamaica flower contains large amounts of iron, phosphorus and calcium, as well as vitamins A, C, B1, among many others, which helps to raise hemoglobin levels and strengthens the immune system. So yes, it is a treasure in our yard! 馃馃槃馃構馃槉馃榾

I love red fruit teas; The Jamaica flower is ideal for making infusions with its petals, it has a super intense red color (it is a beautiful color), its flavor is citrus, which I like a lot. Its shape is exotic and rare, this plant is really very striking, both for its leaves and for its unmistakable flower, which begins as a pale yellow color and at the end turns into a fascinating ruby 鈥嬧媟ed tone.

Before harvesting the flowers of our fabulous plant 馃槣馃槄馃槑 because I already provoc me have a Jamaica Flower tea 馃構 (although I have not decided if hot 鈽 or cold馃イ, they are just as delicious), I wanted to take some photos, with the intention of using them to make some illustrations in my sketchbook; I captured a couple of good photos and I chose one of them for this Illustration that I share with you today, I hope you like it as much as I do鉁岋笍

Below I show you the photo I used for the illustration and the step by step 馃摳鉁岋笍. I used watercolor and ink in my sketchbook, I wanted to do it as an exercise 馃槉馃挀馃帹馃枌锔

Hola a todos por ac谩 馃 Espero se encuentren muy bien en el rinc贸n del mundo donde est茅n 馃寧鉁岋笍 seguramente haciendo cosas maravillosas e interesantes 馃憣馃槑... Hoy escribo para mostrarles una ilustraci贸n que hice 茅ste fin de semana 馃帹馃枌锔忦煒嬸煉

Primero les cuento que a m铆 me encanta la naturaleza 馃寘馃槏馃槉馃挀; los animales 馃惐馃惗馃悽馃惀馃惁 y las plantas 馃尡馃尨馃尶馃尦. en casa tenemos muchas, una de ellas es un arbusto de Flor de Jamaica 馃尦, 茅sta planta naci贸 espont谩neamente en nuestro patio, en una grieta entre el piso y la pared (no es extra帽o que por ac谩 las plantas crezcan en cualquier lugar, solo un poco de agua y listo, nuestra tierra es muy f茅rtil 馃槉), la verdad al principio no sab铆amos qu茅 clase de planta era e incluso mi hermana @marylucy pens贸 en cortarla porque cre铆a que era una hierba mala que no serv铆a para nada.

No cortamos la planta porque estaba creciendo muy bonita y nos intrigaba saber qu茅 era. Ten铆amos varias hip贸tesis, pero no est谩bamos seguros hasta que comenz贸 a florecer y una t铆a nos dijo que ten铆amos un tesoro, era una mata de Flor de Jamaica (mata le decimos en Venezuela a las plantas), noticia que nos hizo felices a todos 馃構馃榾馃槃

La raz贸n de nuestra alegr铆a se deb铆a a que la flor de 茅sta planta tiene muchos beneficios para la salud, adem谩s de ser bella y deliciosa. La flor de Jamaica contiene grandes cantidades de hierro, f贸sforo y calcio, tambi茅n vitaminas A, C, B1, entre muchas otras, lo que ayuda a subir los niveles de hemoglobina y fortalece el sistema inmunol贸gico. As铆 que s铆, 隆es un tesoro en nuestro patio! 馃馃槃馃構馃槉馃榾

A m铆 me encantan los t茅s de frutos rojos; la flor de Jamaica es ideal para hacer infusiones con sus p茅talos, tiene un color rojo s煤per intenso (es un color precioso), su sabor es c铆trico, cosa que me gusta mucho. Su forma es ex贸tica y rara, realmente es muy llamativa 茅sta planta, tanto por sus hojas como por su inconfundible flor, que comienza siendo de un color amarillo p谩lido y al final se transforma en un fascinante tono rojo rub铆.

Antes de cosechar las flores de nuestra fabulosa planta 馃槣馃槄馃槑 porque ya se me antojaba tomarme un t茅 de Flor de Jamaica 馃構 (aunque no me he decidido si caliente 鈽 o fr铆o馃イ, son igual de deliciosos), quise tomarle unas fotos, con la intenci贸n de usarlas para hacer unas ilustraciones en mi cuaderno; consegu铆 un par de buenas fotos y escog铆 una de ellas para 茅sta Ilustraci贸n que les comparto hoy, espero que les guste tanto como a m铆鉁岋笍

A continuaci贸n les muestro la foto que us茅 para la ilustraci贸n y el paso a paso 馃摳鉁岋笍. Utilic茅 acuarela y tinta en mi cuaderno de dibujo, quise hacerla a manera de ejercicio 馃槉馃挀馃帹馃枌锔
