Azaleas and Rocks, Duke Gardens

Azaleas and Rocks, Duke Gardens
Originally uploaded by linfrye
Though the azaleas are just beginning to open in my part of North Carolina, this sketch was painted from a photo I took last year around this time at Duke Gardens.

My home, like my work, commitments are pretty time-consuming these days, but I'm hoping to get out to the gardens as soon as I can for more inspiration and photo references!

Pretty, Lin. Nice composition. Hope you can relax in the garden soon.

I like the softness of the flowers against the hardness of the rocks. Very nice.

Oh how lovely; the rocks, the flowers and especially the trees against the sky. The rail fence is a very nice touch too. Your daily offerings make my day, every day!

I can't wait to get out into the garden either, Lin...the weather has been so cold that I have only done a teeny bit. Lovely azaleas, I love them too(in the garden as well as on your painting) they just fill thier corner with abundant colour, even if they're just white!

Again a lovely spring time sketch, this looks like it came right out of a story book.
