Lillies in my yard. Ink and watercolor.
latest updates: flowers
Watercolors and ink pen. This was sketched at the Mt. Hiei Garden Museum, 848 meters above sea level in Kyoto. 1500 different types of flowers are planted here each season. It’s a French Impressionist garden with huge replicas of famous works by many of those painters. Monet’s garden in Giverney is the most popular replica here. A train, cable car, and a ropeway will get you to this garden.
I wanted to play around with some floral motifs last night and this is the result.
A whole heap of textures and imaginary plants doodled in the back of my molie sketchbook just for a bit of fun.
“Cosmos in Vase”
Painting from still life is not one of my favourites, but it does give one a chance to study light and shadows, This watercolour was done in the large Moleskine watercolour sketch-book.
When spring comes, so do the Paeonies. I couldn’t resist painting one in my large Moleskine Watercolor Notebook. I used watercolor and markers, most of the painting was done with a Tombow blender marker.
