Fan Leaf Seaweed

I have traced over an image from a postcard that was from the “capturing flora” expo at the Ballarat Art Gallery in 2012. When I saw the image on the wall, I thought it was an illustration at first when I glanced at it, but how could it be if it was done in 1827? đŸ˜›
It took me about 3hours all up – a lot of time tracing each leaf, then I took it into photoshop and places a texture of it to create the water colour paint effect.
