Sketching in the garden

This morning it rained. then the rain made way for the sun. We decided some grilled fish would be great for lunch. While mon chéri grilled our daurade over the coals, I lazily, splashed watercolor  and squiggled pen lines in two Stilman &Birn sketchbooks. White tulips in an urn and white daffodils among boxwoods…simple scenes turned into messy washes…how I love it..!

    Ronelle, so beautiful. I love the tulips. So good to see your spring flying across the pond to us here. Our spring is just starting. And it is such a happy moment when our wildflowers start popping up and out.

    • Thank you Annie! I agree…love the wildflowers and they are everywhere in the fields now..pick bunches for little corners. Little things, big pleasure, right?
