mother's day

In fact we're not really
"Mother's Day" people
but daughter surprised me !
Some lovely flowers
(and a big HUG of course)
Tomorrow I will be drawing them,
just like I did yesterday with some flowers from the garden.

I picked some spring flowers 
and put them in a tiny glass on my table.
First with pencil and later with pen on A5 heavy drawing paper
Then came the watercolour 
and after that ... came a LOT more !

This Veronica chamaedrys
is the first one finished of this series
(they will go with me to the market)

(in the garden)

(and this was the start on paper)

So I hope all mothers 
(in fact all women, mother or no mother)
had a lovely day today !

  3. beautiful flower sketches, forget-me-nots are a favourite plant, so easy to grow and love how they always come back in autumn after diving for cover during our hot summers here in the Land Down Under

    1. Well Mo, the Forget-me-nots are true to their name then ! (Clever to take cover in the heat) And yes, once you ever sowed them ... they will always be there (luckily)
