Plein Air….Plants

PhFl2

Hello….Spring!!

Back1

I really enjoy this view from my study in my new house.

So, one day I tried to capture it.

Back3

I first, just got some basic shapes down, and lots of green for those trees.

Back4

When I was done, I went back in and outlined with my micro pen.  The above portion is not outlined and the lower portion was.  I prefer to outline but I don’t dislike the look when it’s not.

Here’s my cactus for my daily Watercolor month last July.

My front door with a potted plant that stayed strong the entire summer!

My Christmas tree sans ornaments.

Here’s a truck from a flower farmer (@floretflower) that I follow on instagram.  Drawn from my ipad feed.

And most recently, my precious plant that was given to me a few years ago.  Grown from a cut off of my grandmothers stock.  A most interesting house plant that can handle my neglect.

Now, I’m off to enjoy this nice weather!

Your drawings are just beautiful. Thanks for putting a little spring into my life. It is presently snowing here (again!) and it seems that winter is our never-ending story! By the time the 6 ft or so of snow melts, it will be winter again. Sigh!

About Me

My photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
