sketchbook :: lilacs again

I wanted to capture my lilac bush while it still had blossoms, so on a warm afternoon last week I sat outside and quickly sketched with watercolor. This is a view looking up at the top most branches of what is now a pretty tall shrub. The blossoms were swaying in the breeze and bright sunlight. This was sketched with a little watercolor pencil and watercolor in an eight by eight inch hand.book watercolor skeychbook.

Hi Ellen! I've only painted lilacs in my sketchbook. But I did take several photos of the blooms and if I do make a painting of lilacs I WILL let you know :-) Thanks so much for your interest!
