Bet you thought I was going to say, Oregano and Thyme! 😉
I used to have “Thyme” but the Oregano kind of took over… haha 🙂
Oregano and Chives are “perennial herbs” meaning they come back each year. (Thyme is too but more temperamental where I live).
I decided to try painting them in watercolor on Arches 300 lb cold-press watercolor paper. I went with the wet-on-wet technique at first:
Painting from my memory, I realized afterwards that I didn’t have the colors quite right!
So I added more watercolor paint… and less water.
More paint made it worse, so I let it rest for a day.
Since I didn’t really like it, I added Posca paint pens:
It still needs more pink but decided to call it a day.
I learned that painting from memory is not as accurate as painting from the real life or a photo.
Do you like to grow Oregano and Chives? I would love to hear how you cook with them!
