Vertical Rope Hanger

How can a rope hanger be vertical right? Looking at the title this question is common. It creates a vertical illusion when some tiny to large combination tubs are hung from upside to down together. When two tubs of Senecio rowleyanus or String of Pearls succulents are put together in a rope hanger, it gives an extremely gorgeous view such as waterfalls.

Gorgeous drawings are usually very open, which makes it easy to understand what the paint means. But we do get some exceptional clients who want meaningful pictures along with gorgeousness. Almost all painters get some of these types of clients. This painting will be best for them.

Some people take home decoring with indoor plants as a passion or an enjoyable pastime that they sometimes made an extra wooden frame or shelf for having plants. It is a good presentation to work with hanging plant drawing for artists.

Typically, people use different hangers or make DIY holders at home, so adding a wooden frame in your painting is indeed create a luxury. Combine chestnut and yellow for the wooden frame. Draw some mixture of different plants with tiny, large, and long leaves (pictured).

Hanging Yellow Roses

Roses and hanging are two very dissimilar words. Ain’t they? Hanging rose plants are very unusual and rare to see. But only an artist can make something extraordinary with unusual matched by his creativity. This tremendous one is a watercolor work of a yellow rose plant in a large ‘U’ shape DIY earthen pot. The homely wasted rope is for hanging it. Looks like the pot is full of rose leaves.

Tiny yellow roses look like peeking from the overloaded leaves. If you want you can customize and give some fewer leaves but I love the overflowing leaves vision. It also has another unusual vision that is its background. This brick wall background makes it a full paper portrait that is undoubtedly very much likable.

Another fabulous watercolor work of tree wreath with cactus and ranunculus. This drawing has a beautiful mixture of hypericum, anemone, succulent, red berry, and eucalyptus leaves isolated in white background. You may know how special tree wreaths are for home decoration in the Christmas season. If you ask me, I will have this painting for the whole year.

This painting is a kind of abstract yet colorful, tiny plants combination. Though it is watercolor work, I tried hard to make these succulents look like real plants. I used purple, green, and pink combinations you can try others too.

Blue Ceramic Pot Hanger

Hanging plants doesn’t mean you must hang them on the ceiling of a room. You can hang them on a vertical wall. This drawing is a Hoya carnosa variegated plant in a sky-blue colored ceramic pot with a back hole hung on the wall. The Hoya carnosa variegated leaves upside falling from the blue pot.

Earthen Tub Holder

There is no best thing for a plantation than an earthen tub. So, when we draw hanging plants, we try to draw maximally with an earthen tub to have the real plant feel. Sometimes adding some creative drawing in the tub makes the painting more attractive. Then people look at the tub first instead of the plant. Hoya Compacta Variegata is already a gorgeous creature of nature you can see.

Their leaves arrangements are so eye-catching that easily draw anyone’s attention. Okay, as I said about the tub design. I made a white and chestnut combination here to show the tub art on an earthen tub.

Hanging Herbs

A hanging plant drawing portrait can serve two purposes: beauty and peace. It also offers you to have a hanging herbs portrait for your kitchen. Isn’t this idea thoughtful? Indeed. I think working with hanging herbs for painting may be the first time for painters.

Choose a bunch of herbs from chives to basil and draw them like hung in a tree branch or a bamboo (pictured). I like to draw green herbs you can make them dried or can add some change in color. Whatever color you choose for herbs always choose eucalyptus hangers. They gave the best results.

Fresh Spring Flower Bowl

Painted fresh spring flower bowls offer color and life to your wall. These drawings bring a splash of energy and freshness, plus serve the home decoring purpose. Spring is a season of color. In spring loads of colorful flowers bloom.

As an artist, it is a success to have them captured in a frame by drawing. It keeps the same spring season vibe in one’s home for the whole year. Here in this portrait, I took some beautiful purple spring blossom in a bowl. If you also gift someone this painting it will look like you gift a bowl of spring blossom.

Modern boho art deals with rattan accessories. Here the plant is on a rattan basket or pot that includes the modern boho art style. Their aesthetic vision creates a gloomy environment in the home. The Hoya Kantiana variegated’s upside falling add a little streaming touch in a gloomy wall.

I guess this one is the most incredible and potential portrait of this article. It took 3 bamboos to make a beautiful triangle hanger. It is mainly an outdoor scenery you can hang in the drawing-room, balcony or beside the window.

The bamboo colors are so rich and perfect. It holds 3 tubs in the 3 corners. 3 different plants you can draw in one portrait. What else can be the best combination than this?  The 3 tubs are also painted in the same color yellow. All over it makes an amazing composition.

Vintage Hoya Heushkeliana

Artists usually feel odd when it comes to drawing vintage or abstract things. They usually work lots with bright colors. But vintage works are great when it is done perfectly and the following work is so perfect to take ideas. This portrait features the Hoya Heushkeliana plant in an earthen tub hanging in a vertical wall.

Hoya Heushkeliana is best for the vintage boho art style. Their leaves are abstract and a combination of two colors that create a vintage effect naturally. And they don’t grow long so don’t make it so long. Try to draw a shrub plant shape it will look better.

Realistic Style Macrame Plant Hanging

I already introduce macramé holder before it is an amazing décor to hang plants. So here I’ll go into detail about the drawing. Realistic drawing method I think the hardest method of drawing because artists have to go through every little detail to make this.

I think the best way to start with this portrait is because it is a single plant hanging portrait. It contains fewer leaves a simple white pot and no gorgeous background. This macramé holder is also so beautifully designed. The combination of the sky-blue holder and white pot with little green creates a fantastic tiny Northeast Greenland park vision.

Clip Art Style

Generally, clip art style gives cartoonish vision but I tried hard to make it realistic and different work. Here I take a large ceramic bowl and a bunch of beautiful different plants and red flowers. Since they are very bright in color so I create a warm background to make them vibrant. And the ceramic pot is hung by a metallic chain that is indeed a buying hanger made by professionals.

So, if you draw this you can proudly say this portrait is different than other portraits. Last but not least it has a shadow aside that makes it looks real.

Tree Trunk Hanger

This image will be a nostalgia for those who grew up beside the large gardens or forest-sided people who used to see large tree trunks cutting. Their precious memory is now captured in a frame by you. Is it really an amusing thought? This portrait will be made with lots of love and care.

Well, I already went back to those memories and start feeling nostalgia. Here are two different hangers to make a garden portrait one is a wooden holder another is an astonishing tree trunk. The tree trunk is held on the top of the paper holding different plants. It is a suggestion when you draw a garden portrait use different sizes of leaves as pictured below.

This is an example of an easy concept that can also make tremendous work. This portrait is so simple that there is no perfection, no fancy elements, and moreover a bland background. Those who are creative and like to do a craft with wasted things will love this portrait undoubtedly.

This is a Hoya Polynuera plant in a plastic bowl drawing. For the bowl, I used grey so that it looks like a cement bowl, and the rope is also done with the same color. What you have to do is mark the leaf veins carefully. That’s all.

Messy Garden Inspired

I don’t know why but I like messy things much than a perfect vision. So, if you are the same as me you can try this Messy Garden-inspired drawing. I shouldn’t call it messy actually because it contains the most real of a garden. The wet floor the warm background has the real vibes actually.

This beautiful warm garden has a combination of two hanging plants and 3 potted plants in the ground. But all the plants are medium-sized and the hanging two are more lively. Since it is a messy theme no need to make it more perfect. It is just perfect as it is below.

Bottom Line
