Despite all the neglect my garden has suffered because of my travels this summer, I still managed to cobble together a bouquet that looked good enough to sketch. I used all the rarely touched colours in the center of my travel palette: permanent magenta, mauve, and cobalt violet.

    Your colours are gorgeous in this painting. Did you do the pen sketch first and then the washes etc.? Or did you put the pen in after.
