Title: Horse chestnuts
Specie: Aesculus hippocastanum

Description: It is a composition of two fruits from horse chestnut tree growing near my house. I think that this texture and shape make them look like aliens. The subject has to be treated more scientifically, but for my own pleasure I like to paint a portrait of the plant.
All my works are multilayer watercolours. I started with the ultramarine on first layers. Then I gently build up the colour on the fruit using the wet-on-dry technique.
