Sketching Flowers

Lilies ~ in all their glory!  I tipped these back for the camera.
Sweet Peas
Brown-eyed Suzies

I haven't been out and about as much as I would like, but did manage to capture a few flower pics. I've started a flower sketch book and since July 6th I added in one or two sketches a day. (I'm stocking up for the winter.) 
As you can see from the painting peeking out on the far left, I've also been drawing/painting fuchsias, but, unfortunately, I dropped a wet brush on the painting, so it's not much to look at.   Although I did manage to remove most of  the dark purple paint with a magic eraser, I'll have to begin again. Obviously, practice is a good thing...

Welcome to my new email followers.  Thank you so much!

Have a lovely week!


  1. Beautiful pictures. Lucky you with sweet peas...I've got green but no blooms. I love your idea of sketching. I stick with taking lots of floral pictures. Have a great week!

  2. Thanks for your pretty post! It really cheered me up in the middle of a tough work week :-)

    1. Your are most welcome. I am glad you liked the post, Carolyn. Colourful flowers are cherry!
      I hope things cool down at work for you very soon.
      Best Wishes...

  3. Lovely photos, Dixie!! The photo of the Sweet Peas is beautiful. I am so sorry to hear that you dropped a wet brush on your painting. I have done that before, it is such a frustrating feeling. Hope you can salvage the painting.

    Enjoy your day,

  4. I love your sweet pea trellis. Mine are earthbound and need a trellis - someday. Wonderful pictures.
