Flowering Almond


Behind the house, tucked in a semi-protected area, is a gorgeous flowing almond -- the most peachy-pink-orange that I've seen. I sketched a flower cluster, again on 140# WC cold press Fabriano paper. The sketch in real life matches the color beautifully -- but I'll be darned if I can't get my scanner (and all my adjustments) to cooperate! SIGH!
