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 www.appeltern.nl). 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.
