Ready for Easter: Bunny, flowers and decorated eggs! And haiku:
‘You cutie bunny
And your pretty Easter egg
Waiting for Easter’
My sketch for Good Friday.
The prompt today at Worldwatercolor group is ‘bee’. I actually painted this in 2010 but I had to share it again, it’s one of my favorites.
Watercolor on Arches 140# WC paper.
I used an app called ‘Phonto’ to print the haiku:
‘Look at this beauty
It’s a Daisy-loving bee
I don’t know what I was thinking or where I was going with this abstract piece but it just developed. And it was fun.
Shapes and colors colliding
Just because they could!’
This was the last page in my Arches 140# watercolor paper sketchbook. Now I can start my new one, same size, same paper.
Our OPUS (Old Puebla Urban Sketchers) had an outing this am at Sabino Canyon. Such a beautiful place to just enjoy and sketching there makes it perfect. Mountains, flowers and cacti, perfect!
This is the first page in my new Stillman&Birns beta sketchbook. We sat in a ramada and sketched the view of the mountains and desert plants. A beautiful day.
Today our church was decorated with tall palm branches/fronds near the altar in honor of Palm Sunday. So I sketched one and wrote a haiku and marveled how much those fronds look like feathers!
‘This palm tree branch/frond
Elegant and symbolic
Used on Palm Sunday’
