After a few days of focussing on the creatures within the British Isles I’ve taken a quick floral interlude. Painting florals is my comfort zone but sometimes its nice to fall back to old habits especially when you have been working on new skills.
A quick and messy red clover sketch after a day at the beach. I didn’t know until I was looking for drawing reference photos that you can eat red clovers! I might have to have a nibble the next time I see them in the woods
Today’s painting is some Wood Violets. They are also known as Common Dog Violets and are common in woodlands especially around this time of year. I find purple tones difficult to paint with but these little floral gems are hard to resist painting.
