I decided to sketch them yesterday, sitting at the bottom of a garden lounger so I could get on a level with the blooms rather than peering down from my little patio area. It wasn't until I had nearly finished, that I realised the sky had gone really dark and there was thunder and lightening drawing near and I was feeling cold in my summery top and skirt!
Needless to say, they were sketched and painted into my new Columbine garden sketchbook. Here are the left and right side of my second double spread.
... and try to imagine this watercolour alongside on the right hand side of the book:
The dirty pages are from balancing my watercolour palette on the page as I worked on my knee!!
