Last Saturday, the plein air group painted in my garden and had lunch at my house. I didn’t paint because I couldn’t focus on cooking and painting at the same time. Today was a calmer day and the weather was beautiful, so I perched on my concrete bench and painted this scene in my watercolor book.
I don’t have many flowers blooming yet, but there was dappled light and shadow on the ground and many variations of green in the foliage. I used diverse brush strokes and ink accents to add texture the painting.
