The bellflower has many folkloric tales attached. In Poland, people who were afflicted with consumption were bathed in an infusion if the flower so as to divine the outcome of their ailment. If their skin darkened, they would survive and be healthy, on the other hand, if their skin remained fair, they would die from the disease. This drawing is from the 100 Days of Flowers projected completed in 2015.
This is an original drawing created with Faber Castell Polychromos coloured pencils on 250gsm Bristol artist paper.
