Coneflowers sketch

This is a quick watercolor sketch of coneflowers (Echinacea purpurea L.) which I based from the pictures I took during one of the outings I did this month
About two weeks ago I joined a group to visit a popular garden park 'De tuinen van Appeltern' in the city of Appeltern here in Holland. The place is a 23-hectare park with about 200 garden designs full of various plants and flowers (check With little time to spend there, I was not able to walk in the entire park as there were so many things to see and to wonder around. I managed however to take a few pictures of some flowers and some garden models which three of them can be seen below.


  1. Cora, je echinacea is perfect herkenbaar...
    Prachtige tuinen laat je hier zien.
    zonnige groetjes,

  2. Hoi Cora:) Ik vind je schilderij zo mooi! Het is zo'n typerende houding van deze bloemblaadjes en je houdt er van of je vindt hem lelijk. En ik vind hem prachtig net als je schilderij. Mooi is het daar he? Ik ben er ooit 1 keer geweest. Groetjes:)
