Tulips at Windmill Gardens, Sumner, WA
The afternoon was just perfect for painting... a cool breeze, not too windy, birds chirping, partly cloudy with intermitten sun breaks to expose those illusive shadows that were playing hide and seek with me.
To be honest I spent more time taking photograph than painting. There were a couple of weddings in the garden so I tried to stay out of the way and off the beaten path.
This is one of the little sketches I painted while I was at Windmill Gardens.
It's in a 7x10 sketchbook filled with 140# CP paper. No drawing for this little treasure, just painted free handed with my Niji water barrel brushes.
