Other artists like Janet Kruskamp and Megan Meagher choose to portray succulents through drawings instead. Kruskamp’s “Succulent I” highlights the unusual texture that succulent plant leaves have. Using highlighting and shading techniques, the artist is able to seamlessly replicate the waxiness of the leaves. Meagher utilizes similar artistic skills in her black-and-white prints “Lunar Succulent I” and “Lunar Succulent II.” The lack of color in these works of art serve to emphasize the distant shapes of the two different succulents’ leaves.
Succulent art pieces showcase nature’s ability to produce works of art. Succulent plants are some of the most diverse plants found in nature and gardens alike; they tend to be some of the most memorable ones, too.
