Sunday Sketches

THE RETURN OF THE PRIMROSE!

I get sooo excited when those dead looking primroses of winter start to bud and grow green leaves. It is a miracle!

I also like the shapes of the leaves and the contrast of the dead brown color to the new green and bloom. I found this one growing out from the hole in the pot which use to hang.

  3. This is beautiful, Joanne. I love the shades and darker colours on this one. By the way, how do you do the shading with your watercolours? A darker colour of what you're using? Black? A mix? Still trying to figure that one out.

    Hugs and happy SS! :)

    Sophia, I usually use a complimentary color to darken original color.
