Happy Earth Day! from Paula
Happy Earth Day everyone! Here in Virginia we're getting some much-needed rain so it's a perfect day. I couldn't resist sketching some of the blooms from my garden today. Fortunately I picked some yesterday so I don't have to sit out in the rain today to sketch them. I did this page directly with watercolor--no drawing--so it's pretty loose, but that's how the garden feels to me right now. We had a very mild winter and a very early spring. Even my red hot poker has a bloom already. And the mosquitoes are already out.
Yesterday 5 of us participated in the 35th International Sketch Crawl so I thought I'd include my sketches from that as well. They aren't OF nature but we were definitely IN nature so I hope that counts. We spent the morning at our local university and all of us agreed that we want to do that again. There was just so much to sketch!
