Their edges and veins are typically a bluish, burgundy or cranberry purple colour and the leaves point down to the ground. native to tropical East Asian countries.
I love the translucent large leaves, perfect for watercolour layers and washes. I used a variety of yellow and green shades for the different leaves and used light blue and purple /burgundy colour for some parts of the edges and veins. I am really quite happy with the outcome colour combintations.
