There is a whole pathway in Beaulieu where the hydrangeas spill majestically over the lawn by the river. I will have another go at it, because the challenge lies in capturing the burst of pinks and blues and not add too much other detail, like I have done in this sketch.
I have been in a deep and long rut art wise, struggling to find my mojo. I started slowly back with some fruit sketches and today I took on a street in Bealieu. I am still far too tight and high strung in my brush strokes but at least I completed the sketch. I think I can start thinking about finding my form again.
