Sketching Roses

These are some recent "after work" sketches of some flowers we had in the house after my Yiayia's (grandmother's) funeral. When I have fresh flowers in the house, I will put off drawing other things so I can sketch them while they are still alive. I also take lots of pictures so I can make some more detailed drawings or paintings later. Here you can see a small watercolor that I also made from some of Yiayia's flowers, although from a different arrangement.


  1. My sympathies for your grandmother's passing. Your delicate drawings are a beautiful remembrance.

  2. What a lovely memorial...beautiful, Carolyn.

  3. I agree--just lovely. You should frame them.
