Day 79 - Bonsai Jade Plant

Yesterday we had a sketchcrawl at the house of one of the members of the group. She had this Jade plant (a succulent) that she kept as a bonsai tree. It was lovely; I especially liked the way that the leaves at the ends of the branches formed cute little rosettes. The day was somewhat overcast still at the time I drew this, so there was very little shadow definition. I made up the color of the pot (I think it actually was a very pale muted green) but I tried to get the tray color approximately right.
Watercolor.
