Chionodoxa

AKA Glory of the snow — an early spring bulb. 

I wanted to capture the bright, delicate blooms and the solid rocks in the late afternoon sun. But, when my husband saw the sketch and said “what is that!” I had to admit the sketch was a disaster. However, when I looked at it the next day, I was transported back to the day before and the peaceful time spent on a warm spring day. So, not a complete disaster.


Lesson learned: this sketchbook (stillman & birn beta) is best for pen drawings enhanced with wash.
