I understand why ART is called a “practice” because some days it takes more “practice” to create a little art…
I was trying to draw and paint a pine cone today but decided I need much MORE practice before I can show you! 😉
I decided on a Nasturtium which I planted as an annual this Spring in a large pot next to a tomato plant. Did you know the flower is edible and has a peppery flavor? It is often added to salads. Here is my sketch next to a photo of the plant:
I wasn’t totally happy with my colors in my sketch. I used watercolor pencils with a limited palette. I hope to paint them again in watercolors – hopefully in a looser style.
I wasn’t going to post my art today but I decided that it is PRACTICE not perfection that is my goal!
Happy Sketching!! 🙂
