This is more a sketch than a painting but I had to be very quick to get the tulips back into the water. I didn’t plan to buy flowers but couldn’t resist the special offer. They are organic… if you know me you know that counts too:-) . Das ist eher eine wilde Skizze als… Tulips / Tulpen weiterlesen
Today on my way home I stopped to do a little sketch of this patch of crocus. The weather wasn’t too friendly and I soon started to freeze. But no doubt: spring is coming!

It’s not that I wasn’t sketching or painting but I didn’t find the time to prepare a blogpost. I was involved in a little accident last week that kept me off track for a few days.

I had to watch some Andrew-Geeson-videos on youtube first :-]] And thanks to Jill now I know for shure the flowers are peavines! See her… Peavine / Platterbsen weiterlesen
