Springtime flowers

Flowers on my table mean I can sketch without leaving home. This bouquet from Matilda’s Bloombox lasted forever and got sketched twice.

What I love about these bouquets is that they always include a rich variety of textures, which are fun to capture.

And this last little spread is from an afternoon spent in Nina’s ‘hood, drawing the tulips in her neighbor’s front yard.

Sometimes, my idea of mixed media is as layered as the piece in the blue vase, and at other times, it is as simple as this spread with tulips. Either way, I find my work to be more playful, experimental, and open-ended when I am mixing media. So I’m putting together an online class based on the approach that I’ll announce early next month. It goes out to my mailing list first, so if you’d like to hear of it, sign up for my newsletter here.
