I have planned to write this article for a week, but I was not happy about the result.
During my week of holidays, I drew an illustration a day, with a pencil on a notebook. I took notes about what I visited, but most of my drawing are in french. If you are interested in, you can see them here and here.
But, for non-french speakers, I find that it may be complicated to read them, so I decided to write this shortened article, with only english speechbubbles.
The illustrations below are related to the day I visited the Bambouseraie of Généragues, in France. It is a huge garden with a lot of bamboos and rare trees and plants.
With the protection of my cowboy hat, sunglasses, and the mask, I wanted to quote Gandalf in a funny way.
Wait, did I just say bamboos ? =P
I felt like I had to do this picture, because I imagined so well how I could add illustration on it ^^ And yes, I kept the proportions of the picture, the bamboos were really big !
The bambouseraie has also a special acclimatization garden, where varieties of plants that usually enjoy a hotter weather are grown. There were banana trees, so this reminded me the Banana Boat Song (Day-O) from Harry Belafonte.
Hope you enjoyed this article ! :)
