#13 Sweet Peas- Sheryl Hawkins

I guess it is the dreary, foggy days we've been having- but it makes me want to paint garden watercolors. Sweet peas are one of my favorite flowers, I love all the soft colors and they grow like crazy when they like the planting spot. In many of my watercolors, I like to leave a white background and just let the subject stand on its own. I have been wanting to add ink to some of my paintings lately and I think something like this would be a good place to start- maybe next time.

watercolor- 140lb cold press, rough surface

What a pretty reminder that summer was and summer will be. Very nice.

...with four inches of snow on the ground and freezing temps, this painting is a breath of fresh air for me. Sweet...sweet peas! The leaves and twiney-viney things are very convincing. I like it.
