Dipsacus sylvestris – Teasel, 2015

A very common weed of the fields and ditches, the Teasel’s most familiar feature is its large, prickly seed head. In this case what struck me was the spiralling curls of the dried leaves. This is the same pair of leaves in two views. Watercolour, casein, acrylic. 12″h x 18″w. ©Kathryn Chorney
