I have a number of Astilbe at home and they're just beginning to bloom. I saw this photo and though I'd honor that plant by sketching it.

Nice composition! My astilbe is probably 6 weeks from blooming, not a sign of a flower stalk yet. Sigh.

I hadn't heard of the astilbe before but I like your bright clear colours very much! A creative comp too.

This IS NICE! I like the little edge of the pond in there too. Astilbies aren't exactly easy to draw and you have done a great job on them!
