I'm still playing with wet in wet techniques and thought I'd try to capture the flowering plum trees in a soft, colorful manner. Despite all the rain and freezing night temps, our flowering shrubs and trees have managed to hold onto their flowers - and though they're a bit less perky, they still look pretty good.

Stay dry!


  1. lovely splattering technique, pretty colouring :) Jules

  2. love this tree, it shouts spring. I have always loved sketching trees and trying to capture the seasons and landscapes in a simple way. I have written about it here with some examples of my work, perhaps you will find time to take a peek.
