a garden evening

These days, with the ultra-nice weather, I literally RACE home to find something to draw. This evening, it was all about gardening. First I sat in front of a large double flower pot and recorded what I planted just the other day. It is still a bit sparse at the moment, but hey, easier to draw!! I 'll have to do updates as the plantings mature.

THEN I started my newest moleskine, one devoted to the garden where I live. It has been a lot of work and needs much more, but I'm ready to tackle it again this year. We'll see how it goes!!

I can't tell you enough how much I love how you combine watercolor and ink!!!! As someone trying to learn more about how to do this (teaching myself thru books) -- do you have any recommendations?
