I tried looking up rhododendron and azaleas to figure what I sketched. But between my loose sketch and the similarity of the two flowers, I can’t tell.
What I do know is that it’s lovely to sketch with friends. I stole these three images from Iva’s instagram feed. That’s Iva, Nina and me, sketching that day.
When I draw like this, without pausing to think and plan, my compositions are chockablock with stuff. Maximalist. Messy. Bursting at the seams. Or maybe it’s just that I’m happy to sketch with friends. And happy it’s getting warmer and spring is here.
So are those rhododendrons or azalea that we painted?
