I realised I had not posted my March entry in my handmade floral garden sketchbook, so opened it up to find I had not in fact completed it! So I added the reds on the left hand page where the tulips had not opened up in the shade of the morning, as I remembered they were much redder looking than the fully open blooms on the right hand page. Then had fun adding some splashes and a few softer blooms to merge the two pages across the double spread.
As you will see on the right hand page, when the sun came round onto this flower bed, it not only opened the blooms right up but changed the bluish leaves to much brighter greens.
April is nearly over and as yet not painted this month's sketchbook entry... but I have been busy preparing some 8 x 20 ins floral acrylics for a weekend show. Here's the one I called MIDNIGHT MAGNOLIAS.
