On the shady side

I had the pleasure of spending time in a most stunning garden this weekend. There were so many views that I could have sketched, but I settled on this shade garden. Hummingbirds were frolicking in the birches while I sketched. What bliss!

Lesson learned: the paint on this Pentallic sketchbook paper seems to dry much lighter seems. I’ll need to practice getting some vibrancy in it with my travel palette paints, since this is the “kit” I’ll be taking on my travels this summer.

  1. Just catching up on your sketches. This is a beauty. Seems like you were really relaxed while doing this. I like what you do with that Pentalic book, and yes, you need to add colour to get vibrancy. Stephanie Bower uses these.
