Typically Spring

DSCN8314

 

As it was far too wet to do any serious painting outside today, even from the comfort of the car, I was staring out of the window wondering if the rain would ever stop, when the Hyacinths in the garden caught my eye. I decided to try and sketch one through the window, and the rain drops.

I used mostly Cerulean Blue, French Ultramarine and Winsor Violet for the flowers and Winsor Lemon or New Gamboge and French Ultramarine for the leaves. I also dropped in some violet into the green where I wanted it dark.

Painted in a Stillman and Birn Beta series softback sketchbook.
