A busy time

 
AQUARELLA  -  5  X  7  INCHES
CUDDLING
BUTTERY YELLOW

THE FIRST PEONY
SOMETHING BLUE

PANSIES
 
C'est un beau temps de l'année où la nature commence à s'exciter et sortir ses couleurs.  A peine, ai-je eu quelques minutes pour dessiner et aquareller!  Le jardin me réclame et ne veut pas attendre , il y a tant à faire et c'est tellement agréable d'être enfin dehors.

It's a lovely time of the year when nature is wakening up and colors are showing everywhere.  I just had a few minutes for this doodle because my garden is calling me.  This is a busy time but it's so much fun to be outside after a long winter.

Hallo Helen, het is inderdaad even doorwerken als de natuur ontwaakt in de lente, maar zo aangenaam in de zon.

Your sketch is as lovely as your garden! I've spent more time in the garden than painting, too, but it's all creative. And we will have more subjects to paint as the summer progresses. Thanks for sharing the artwork, and for letting us take a peek at your beautiful garden.

Hello Helen! I lost access to my blog for some months but finally I'm back. Missed blogging so much!Your watercolour is very spontaneous and alive, loved it!

En voyant le résultat de ton aquarelle si vivante, si expressive, presque explosive, je pense que ton peu de temps a été un temps de qualité.

Abrazotes
(En voyant ma petite terrasse, encore presque endormie, je suis un peu jalouse de ton jardin bien fleuri, hé, hé...)

Dear Helen - love your sketch my friend. Like you I am so busy in the garden too that all I can do is just a few quick pencil sketches. Hopefully once the planting is done and the weed pulling we can enjoy our endeavors and paint! Have a lovely day. Hugs!

Love the looseness of this fresh floral, Helen. Your new header is awesome and I've enjoyed scrolling down and seeing what I've missed of late.
