My accordion book

Bradford Pears
Forsythia-the background on this one got too dark...was trying to make the light yellow show up on the pale green...no easy feat....these two will get a quote around the edge when i slow down painting! Azaleas- I think this one is my favorite! Like all the bright pink!

these are the sketches i did so far in my accordion book...they are from the spring pictures i took in our neighborhood on Easter. I was going to take more Saturday BUT it was rainy all weekend so I didn't!

OH! This is just awesome! What a beautiful book this will be. Did you make the book yourself or is it a Japanese accordian moleskine? This is cool!

I like the color and the style of these drawings.

Just because said...

Yes, but how ever do you paint and draw over where the pages meet in the middle???

They are all lovely! I'm especially fond of the azaleas --you drew them so gracefully.

These are all so nice! I love the color and texture you achieved with these flowers. The azaleas have to be my favorite. We just don't get those big showy azalea blooms up here.
