Lychnis and Onion
I went outdoors early this morning to find something to sketch. My lychnis were in full bloom! So I pulled out a step ladder (I MUST get a suitable sketch seat) and sat down to sketch. After only 10 minutes -- the intense sun and heat had me in a sweat!! I collected a blossom and leaf and went indoors to cool off and get my eyes to adjust!
I'm also determined to learn more about shading and color blending. I sketched this onion and added watercolor as I sat after lunch in the shade of the porch.
After a difficult workweek, today was a true relaxing gift!
