I am in LOVE with the flower photos and gardens of my sweet, blogging friend, Ali at The Mindful Garden!
She grows the most gorgeous flowers in her yard!! And takes stunning photos of them too!
With her permission, I tried to paint some of her tulips yesterday in watercolor.
Here are my process photos:
Watercolor is a difficult art medium for me. Perhaps I struggle too hard to make my flowers look “real.” And yet, I always feel like I learn to “see” my subjects a little clearer when I try to draw or paint them.
I do hope you check out Ali’s blog! Her gardens are always a delight to my senses!

If you were to describe Spring with two
lips … I mean colors, what two colors would you choose?
I’d choose Prismacolor Pencils; Spring Green and Rose pink…
How about you?
What art medium and name describe the colors best for you?
Happy Spring! (Wishful thinking…)
Cheers! 🙂 🌷

As winter approaches, I suddenly have Spring on my mind:
Above are rows of tulips from my imagination.
I would love to see the Spring tulips in Skagit Valley, Washington!
It is on my Bucket List! 😊
What is on your wish list to do before you die?!
I’d love to hear from you!

I started with a quick charcoal sketch in my sketchbook:
Then a quick contour sketch in pen:
Some blind contour sketches that look kind of strange:
Colored my contour ink drawing with Neocolors:
And softened them with water:
Wishing you a sunny Saturday!
Happy Sketching! 💐
