a little quiet watercolor

I always make apologies when I post my watercolor sketches because that is really what they are. I don't pretend to be an accomplished water colorist. I do not practice enough. The different flowers will find their way into my fiber art. I dabbled a little this afternoon after my husband fell asleep on the sofa following his golfing this morning. The boys went out again today. I was going to meet them for the second nine but Gord was tired after all the golfing he's done. I am feeling weak and tired today, perhaps something to do with the yellow pollen dust that is floating around out there right now, so I opted out.
Rather than run the sewing machine, I thought I'd sketch my flowers which I just happened to have photographed last night.
The first one is a columbine which reseeds and pops up all over the place. They are quite pretty and delicate looking.

I just bought this foxglove. I've always loved them , tried them once before unsuccessfully, so we'll see.

I think they are great water colour sketches!! I especially like the Columbine...they are so delicate and pretty. I have them in my back yard too...you are right..they pop up all over the place.

The sketches look good. My columbine reseeds, too. I only have yellow foxglove and it reseeds also.

I think your watercolor sketches are lovely! I want to teach myself but it isn't so easy. I used to draw all the time but haven't done so in years and am finding it quite difficult to get those creative juices flowing in that regard. Hope you have a great week. Tammy
