Jamaica Flower illustration, watercolor and ink / Ilustración de Flor de Jamaica, acuarela y tinta [Eng/Esp]

in Sketchbook2 months ago




Hello everyone here 🤗 I hope you are very well in the corner of the world where you are 🌎✌️ surely doing wonderful and interesting things 👌😎 ... Today I am writing to show you an illustration that I made this weekend 🎨🖌️😋💓

First I tell them that I love nature 🌅😍😊💓; animals 🐱🐶🐢🐥🐦 and plants 🌱🌴🌿🌳. At home we have many, one of them is a Jamaica Flower bush 🌳, 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 😊), 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 😋😀😄

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! 🤗😄😋😊😀

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 ​​red tone.

Before harvesting the flowers of our fabulous plant 😜😅😎 because I already provoc me have a Jamaica Flower tea 😋 (although I have not decided if hot ☕ or cold🥤, 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✌️

Below I show you the photo I used for the illustration and the step by step 📸✌️. I used watercolor and ink in my sketchbook, I wanted to do it as an exercise 😊💓🎨🖌️

Hola a todos por acá 🤗 Espero se encuentren muy bien en el rincón del mundo donde estén 🌎✌️ seguramente haciendo cosas maravillosas e interesantes 👌😎... Hoy escribo para mostrarles una ilustración que hice éste fin de semana 🎨🖌️😋💓

Primero les cuento que a mí me encanta la naturaleza 🌅😍😊💓; los animales 🐱🐶🐢🐥🐦 y las plantas 🌱🌴🌿🌳. en casa tenemos muchas, una de ellas es un arbusto de Flor de Jamaica 🌳, ésta planta nació espontáneamente en nuestro patio, en una grieta entre el piso y la pared (no es extraño que por acá las plantas crezcan en cualquier lugar, solo un poco de agua y listo, nuestra tierra es muy fértil 😊), la verdad al principio no sabíamos qué clase de planta era e incluso mi hermana @marylucy pensó en cortarla porque creía que era una hierba mala que no servía para nada.

No cortamos la planta porque estaba creciendo muy bonita y nos intrigaba saber qué era. Teníamos varias hipótesis, pero no estábamos seguros hasta que comenzó a florecer y una tía nos dijo que teníamos un tesoro, era una mata de Flor de Jamaica (mata le decimos en Venezuela a las plantas), noticia que nos hizo felices a todos 😋😀😄

La razón de nuestra alegría se debía a que la flor de ésta planta tiene muchos beneficios para la salud, además de ser bella y deliciosa. La flor de Jamaica contiene grandes cantidades de hierro, fósforo y calcio, también vitaminas A, C, B1, entre muchas otras, lo que ayuda a subir los niveles de hemoglobina y fortalece el sistema inmunológico. Así que sí, ¡es un tesoro en nuestro patio! 🤗😄😋😊😀

A mí me encantan los tés de frutos rojos; la flor de Jamaica es ideal para hacer infusiones con sus pétalos, tiene un color rojo súper intenso (es un color precioso), su sabor es cítrico, cosa que me gusta mucho. Su forma es exótica y rara, realmente es muy llamativa ésta planta, tanto por sus hojas como por su inconfundible flor, que comienza siendo de un color amarillo pálido y al final se transforma en un fascinante tono rojo rubí.

Antes de cosechar las flores de nuestra fabulosa planta 😜😅😎 porque ya se me antojaba tomarme un té de Flor de Jamaica 😋 (aunque no me he decidido si caliente ☕ o frío🥤, son igual de deliciosos), quise tomarle unas fotos, con la intención de usarlas para hacer unas ilustraciones en mi cuaderno; conseguí un par de buenas fotos y escogí una de ellas para ésta Ilustración que les comparto hoy, espero que les guste tanto como a mí✌️

A continuación les muestro la foto que usé para la ilustración y el paso a paso 📸✌️. Utilicé acuarela y tinta en mi cuaderno de dibujo, quise hacerla a manera de ejercicio 😊💓🎨🖌️

VEry good work, and I'm happy that you try post more :) .... and here is just now morning when I text this comment .... and fruit tea I need just now :) it is good to get in morning when I have winter here and out is -7 cold :))
I hope you get lot cool fruits and plants to eat in your garden if the soil is very good :) ... here summer very short and we have just 4 month to get something in garden :)

thank you very much 😊. In that climate that plant would not survive, it is too cold. Jamaica tea would be ideal for a cold morning or night. Here we drink it at night because it helps us sleep better, a rich infusion full of petals that are super delicious too, my niece Isabela loves to eat the petals that remain in the bottom of the pot where I prepare it 😄

Sounds good idea what you say :) to use it to go sleep :)
here many use nettle tea or chamomile for this purpose... that they hope it helps sleep more good or not let them get sick :)

Interesting 🤓.... chamomile is also used here for these purposes and for stomach upset but there are many herbs, plants, even fruit trees with many medicinal properties 🌿😄😊

Cool :) ... I hope you have lot them :) lot them are also good to use in food also :)
like nettle, which is good to use in soups :)

Yes, we always consume them, whether in tea, juices, soups, salads, or with meats 😋

Jeje ✌️😊
