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.
There was a sale of Fontaine watercolor paper a week ago in the shop where I usually go for art supplies. The paper is 100 percent cotton, 300 grams and extra rough. I thought I would try it for my sketching time. Yesterday, I got some time to sketch these roses. I like the paper but I don't know if it is good for a project that requires realistic details.
I realized that it is almost one month since my last blog post here. So, here is a painting of fours pears that I did last month but I missed to share. The painting is in watercolor. Have a pleasant weekend to all of you.
