This past weekend was a perfect weather weekend, and I stole some hours on Sunday to sketch some tulips in Hub’s front garden. (I say Hub’s garden because if the flowers had to depend on me, they’d all be dried flowers!)
This was done in a Strathmore watercolor sketchbook with Derwent standard watercolor pencils, and for the first time, I was almost pleased with a flower I’ve tried to render. I decided it needed a bit of definition, though, and went back in with a .005 Micron pen:
I wish tulips bloomed for several months, because I’d stay with them; they’re much easier than their petaled counterparts! 🙂
I know you all are dancing, because I can already hear the music! Lady Spring seems to be leading the parade; I’m seeing tiny white petals floating in the breeze. Have a fantastic weekend, everyone!
