My garden is constantly changing and I am trying to capture everything as it blooms! a little overwhelming. My lilacs and bleeding heart are just about finished blooming and I did a quick sketch of each. It is very liberating to just grab my brush and paints and "draw" with the paint. These were done on hot press cotton rag paper. I love the smooth feel of the paper. Usually I paint on 140# cold press, but the hot press is nice for these small sketches.
Don't you just love the black butterfly with the white polka dots and orange legs!!!
