Spring Azaleas

 At long last we have warm weather in the lowcountry of South Carolina.  Just last week the azaleas popped.

I didn't have to go far to find a scene to paint.  This is right in our neighborhood near the golf course.

This spread is in my 'Book of Trees' - a Stillman and Birn Zeta Series journal.  Love this paper!

The challenge when painting plein air is remembering the lighting that first caught your eye.  Two and a half hours went by before I had a completed page to photograph.  Oh well, you get the idea....


  1. A beautiful burst of springtime, Pam.

  2. Thanks, Elva! It's so nice to be warm again :)

  3. Love it! We don't see azaleas in Colorado like that!

    1. Thank you, U S Denver! I have to say the mass plantings in the south are spellbinding.
