Lovely rose

I painted this rose during my practice time in August last year but it is only now that I am posting it here. This was inspired by someone else work but with so many paintings I saw from youtube and other sources I could not remember anymore whose work it is.
I will be going for a vacation in Zwitserland and Italy, so I wish you all a fruitful and enjoyable painting time. Until then.

A big old tree

I painted this old big tree last February but have not yet posted it here. I was hesitant to show it here because I felt I still have to improve it. But since I have no new painting to share today, I decided to post it anyway. The inspiration for this painting came from the photo of a family friend that was sent to us as a christmas card.

Buddleia flower

This time of the year there are always Buddleia plants flowering with various colors in my neighborhood's gardens and parks. Last Tuesday, having just enjoyed the smell of the flowers in the garden nearby my house, I sketched this Buddleia flower and sent it as a birthday card to a family member who just had his birthday.
Buddleia plant is commonly known as butterfly bush. Its flower attracts many insects particularly butterflies.

Another light red rose sketch

This is another rose sketch I did last week together with the one I posted a week ago using Fontaine watercolor paper.
I wish everyone a peaceful and relaxing weekend. Cheers.
