Amsterdam Botanic Garden (‘De Hortus’) is one of my favourite places to take a break from the bustle of the city. I spent my last visit sketching in the glasshouses.
Agave parryi (also known as Mescal Agave, Parry’s Agave) is an evergreen succulent with grey-blue leaves and short black tipped spines. I developed the woodcarving below from this original sketch, emphasising these special features in the finished print.
‘Mescal Agave’ is now available as a limited edition print and as a greetingcard. Please contact me for availability.
If you’re interested in visiting: de Hortus is open every day 10 am till 5 pm
