After a very busy day yesterday doing a wedding function at work,including the photos(I only took 500!); I relaxed today with some spring sketches.
Spring is well under way with bluebells out 2 weeks early due to dry weather. I drew some primroses and an orange tip butterfly-one of my favourites. I was chasing them the previous weekend and managed to get some photos of them. I will try to draw some ladies smock- Cardamine pratensis, to go with it.This is one of the flowers that they lay their eggs on along with garlic mustard - Alliaria petiolata, and some other members of the mustard family(crucifers).
I will also post another spring painting that I did a couple of years ago.
Here we have a glistening inkcap mushroom,2 fern crosiers,a violet,
a lesser celandine and some dandelion seeds.
Happy spring xx
