Spring has Sprung


This is my post for the April Virtual Sketch Date. I did the back ground first around the blocked in areas for the flowers.
It is a watercolor on hot pressed paper. Thank you to Jeanette Jobson for providing the reference photo of a rhododendron bud from her garden.

Interesting idea flipping the image, love the purples and blues.
