sketchbook :: first blooms

Our daffidils have just begun to blossom. To celebrate the first day of spring I picked a couple to sketch in my newly made sketchbook. This sketchbook is made with 140lb Kilimanjaro cold press paper. I will have more about that and my selection of colors for my 12 color travel palette in my next post. Happy Spring everyone!

Ann, I mentioned you and your handmade seasonal sketchbooks during my art journaling talk last Monday. I love that you have seasonal books. I'm not so together.

Beautiful sketch! I love how you handled the shadows. I always find it challenging to get great shadows on a yellow object.....

This is beautiful, Ann! I love how the hard edges in the front petals lend to depth of field.
