Earlier in the week I went out into my backyard to find something to draw. I was surprised to see the
Tree Guy had come and cut back the fig tree with out actually scheduling it. I did call and tell him to come anytime, and he did! It was a pleasant surprise that he'd done it without my knowledge.
This tree grow so tall and wide that it overcomes this part of the yard. I hope now with it just 8 feet from the ground I'll be able to get as many figs as the birds do way up at the top where I cannot reach!
My Next endeavor was to draw from a photo I had taken in my yard of this velvety lavender plant,
which as the fig tree I drew first in ink using my Faber-Castell artist pen, black SX.
And then I painted it in watercolors (Newton & Winsor)
And finally, I found another photo, this time of my beloved Hollyhocks. I once had fifty of these wonder stalks growing tall in both our front and back yards. They do reseed themselves and return
each year, but not in such abundance anymore. I will get five or six a year now.
They have such happy faces and kind of sway and dance in the breeze!
Can you see them dancing with you?
