A Few from my Garden Journal Sketchbook

Last year, I tried to paint all the perennials in my garden and I think I accomplished that. This year I'm sketching some of my annuals and other things around the yard.
I think I've become more comfortable sketching and I'm learning to simplify. Using a fine point pen and watercolour wash has made the process easier. Now I wish I'd used this technique from the beginning! Oh well, live and learn!


  1. these are wonderful, paintings. I'm happy to see such a great new background to your blog. It fits very well!

  2. Thanks Melanie, I'm glad you like my sketches and the new background to my blog....I wanted something different.

  3. A lovely idea to record all your garden flowers - I wish I could be as disciplined but my butterfly mind won't settle! Beautiful sketches!
