We were for a quick weekend at Coin Perdu, starting some work again. but it was raining and we didn’t get alot done. Went for some nice walks though. On my sketchercise walk I took my pen and sketchbook and roughly sketched some dry weeds from last season. The fileds are covered in flowers, especially the bright yellow marigolds, but since it was overcast, they were all closed.
Here are dry Scottish thistlel, some goutweed and young Plantain.
All sketches in pen/pencil and watercolor wash in Sketchercise book, 18x25cm.
This morning on my walk here in Montlouis, the weather was as bad, if not worse. It is alwasy a few degrees warmer in Correze than it is here. I went for my walk, having a hanglip becasue of the weather. My bones are asking for good spring and summer weather now! I need to be outside now, in nature and in the sun and by the river and bare arms and walking barefoot!
So here are some frustrated sketches from this morning’s walk in un temps de chien(awful , dog weather)!
A daffodil and hyacinth and tulip encountered on my walk, as also an underground water pipe.
A sunny Forsythia in bloom, and a curb and flowerbed near my home.

Sometimes weeds are as pretty as blooms even in their dried state. Beautifully done Ronell. Good to see some sketches again.
Your sketches are delightful. You’ve made them sunny and happy, even though you say the weather is en temps. de chien.
Sorry can’t even spell my own name!!
Quick, loose and *recognisable* My heart skipped to see forsythia (which, of course, does not grow here.)
Today, 5am, is the first morning I’ve noticed the chill.
I always think of forsythia as the herald of Spring. Your sketches are very nice. What a great way to document your walks. I’ve never heard of sketchercise. I NEED some!
Really beautiful work. You’re an artist!
It’s wonderful to find beauty even on a dog’s day. It’s there for us to find and you’ve certainly done that.
Lovely sketches, and enviable color! Spring is sloooooooooow to arrive here. Snow in the forecast AGAIN. (sigh)
I really like these sketches, Ronell. I love the way you mix your greens! You must share you palette with us one day! ~ and I must start sketchercising!
It is suppose to be a gorgeous weekend here, so I need to get out and get started!
Have a lovely day.
Hi Ronell, just stopped by to wish you a Happy Easter weekend.
