I’ve mentioned how slow I am in January. I fiddle everywhere without getting anything done. With aw eek of January left, I decided to give myself a project for this week. I always work better towards a deadline with objectives and projects. I have some forced bulbs and for these few days I will render them in more ways than one. My technique is busy changing, which is of course a good thing, but in the process of that change it is without definition and all over the place. Experimenting with brush and line may just open up a new door for a February project.
So the first bulbs are the hyacinths. Lovely to look at, but they really cornered me. I did several of which I show only these two.

So lovely, Ronelle.. I love your greens, always. And the way you light the flowers.
Thank you annie!
My hyacinths died before I thought of drawing them. Love your results.
