Hi there, how are you?
This week at the supermarket I spotted some freesias in amongst the flowers. They were still in tight buds but the promise of that gorgeous smell was enough for me to pop them into the basket.
When I bought them they were all green so the colour would be a surprise; turns out there is one red bunch and one purple bunch. A bit of a colour clash so they’re in two vases
I managed a little sketch of the red flowers in bud before they had opened, it was fun, drawn with a brush pen and coloured with watercolour.
By the next day everything was starting to open and smelling wonderful so I drew them again this time without the brush pen, trying to make them a little less cartoony.
The purple flowers opened a little later, I drew them as they opened.
I’m not to happy with this next one, it looked OK as I drew it but when the colour was added it kind of got away from me.
They look a little better in the book but the greens have scanned a lot brighter, Maybe the pink confused the scanner.
Over all the freesias have been lovely models this weekend maybe if they last a little longer
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by. Till next time, have fun x
