The good stuff

Spring is the best time in my garden. That’s when all the good stuff blooms. After that it’s mostly hostas and other low maintenance plants that are good in shade. Nothing worth cutting or sketching, unfortunately. In spring there’s also lots to do in the garden, liking hauling around bags of mulch, but my reward at the end was that I picked a jar full of this good stuff, and I got to sketch it.

    Hi Shari, quick question
    What pen do you favour for your light line drawings of the subject to begin with?

    • Hi James, This one was done with pencil first. No pen at all. When I do use pen it is a very fine marker like a Pitt Artist Pen or a Micron 005. But I prefer to use a 2B mechanical pencil.

    I’m in Rangeley Maine right now and there is not much that’s green yet. Daffs are just starting. And nothing much else happening. Thanks for sharing your local color. Love your greens.

    It’s a keeper for sure. I like the arrangement and colors. The glass vase is very convincing & all so beautifully painted….as always. I am so glad you share your thoughts, color comments and helpful hints that help us all to be better when we paint.
