It’s a jungle out there.

I sketched this spot in the garden where, while sitting, it is an eyeful of foliage and flowers. And it changes a bit every day.

After drawing in pen, I used Caran d’Ache Museum Aquarelle watercolour pencils, just for a change of pace, then watercolour paint. The pencil colour is intense.

Actual Size (Arrival of Spring, continued)

There is a wide variety of daffodils blooming in my garden these days. Everything from huge blooms about 4 inches across to tiny ones smaller than a fingernail, from the classic yellow daffodil to scented white clusters of pillowy petals. This double-page sketch shows just a few, drawn at actual size in an A5 sketchbook.

ERRATUM: In my last post I was mistaken in the title of David Hockney’s latest book. The title is actually “Spring Cannot be Cancelled.”
