Summer Garden Sketching

inspiration, nature, sneak peekCharlotte Brown

I'm really enjoying the summer sun this year - and took advantage of the nice weather to make a sketching trip with my artist friend to a local garden...

I took lots of photos to inspire future projects.... gorgeous flowers all in bloom...

I decided to settle next to these beautiful daisy-type flowers for some sunny sketching...

Perfect, happy summer daisies

I worked quickly and sketched in light pencil, forming the main shapes, and making notes about the detail. I sketched as many flowers as I could during the time I had, then inked in at home the following day, (during a very wet, rainy weekend)...

I will be finishing off my daisies this afternoon, and intend putting them together with some more flowers to create my designs...

Whilst in the gardens, I also met these little cuties...

Watch the birdies - I think I will be sketching these soon too!
