Welcome! Hope you see some artwork that pleases you, if not now, maybe next time…

Autumn sketches I..hydrangeas in an autumn garden.

I’ve cleaned my garden, prepared it for autumn and the colours are already turning beautiful golds and reds…and old colours, like the hydrangeas.

This afternoon was the first of my art afternoon with MArie-Christine. We do such different work, which is inspiring. I forgot to ask her psrmission to show her piece here today, but she will be continuing next week, and maybe even the week after, so keep an eye open on Thursdays to see how we progress on our pieces.

For today I only did two sketches in pen and watercolor, but from next week on I’ll also do more serious work…I was so fatigued today and didn’t have the energy to do an oil painting..

Sketches of the autumn hydrangeas in the garden just outside my atelier..

both sketches in pen and watercolor in sketchbooks.

…hydrangeas and greens…

…hydrangeas and urn…

  1. I always love your sketches Ronell for the carefree joy I see in them. You don’t seem to have any of the uptight feeling that I sometimes see in my own. I’d love to see you sketch someday. It just looks like you find such fun in the process.

  2. I could just say “Ditto” to Stacy’s comment. I was thinking almost the exact same thing!

  4. The jumbled appearance of an autumn garden perfectly captured.

  5. …and a fourth ditto! Couldn’t have said it any better. Maybe one day I will come over and sketch with you!

    As I type this comment, I look out over my computer and see my own hydrangeas which are begging to be painted. I love the colors of autumn.

    Have a lovely day~~

  6. Hydrangeas have such wonderful colours as they begin to fade and you’ve caught them beautifully.

  8. Gorgeous autumn sketches – I’m not surprised you were tired after all that gardening, but it doesn’t show at all in those energetic lines and brushstrokes.

  9. Nice looseness to both of these autumn sketches!!! The fall seems to be moving in so quickly.

  11. Gorgeous. I love how you manage to create a perfectly respectable, un-wonky urn with just a few dabs of tone here and there. Genius!

  12. 5th ditto! Quelle dĂ©monstration magistrale! J’adore! Cette urne est saisissante de simplicitĂ©! et dans le premier croquis, ton hortensia semble frĂ©mir de vie!
