Crocus


This is the first crocus I have seen in our yard this spring.
What a beautiful day here today - very warm for April - a little over 70 degrees! It felt soooo good to be out there.

This is done in my Moleskine sketchbook with watercolor, gouache, and a Pitt pen. The pen was really too fat for this little drawing, so I washed over it with white gouache to tone it down a bit.

That's interesting Catherine, for I've had the same trouble with my Pitt pen. I thought it was a bit heavy for the sketches in my Moleskine. I guess I like a thinner line also. Great little crocus sketch. Glad your weather was inspiring!!!
