Everything is blossoming right now and it is so beautiful! I was on a run (ah, what? Yeah, it’s time to get in shape!) this afternoon and I couldn’t help but feel inspired by the natural beauty around. Living in town doesn’t allow for a lot of nature hikes, but I do see nature in the small things like potted plants on front porches, little flower boxes, and even in the garden center at the supermarket.
I love it all.
For this piece, I had these photos for reference:
I sketched this lady on watercolor paper (which feels so expensive!) with a ballpoint pen, then painted her with Winsor & Newton Cotman watercolors.
For the flowers, I first took the picture on my run (…okay I’m a teensy bit proud of myself. It’s not every day I can find the motivation to exercise!) and then used that as a loose reference. Finally, I combined the two in Photoshop 🙂
I figured the turtleneck was a bit much for spring, but with the weather we’ve been having, it might be appropriate.
Note: Does anyone know what type of tree that is?
2nd Note: Thank you to What Olivia Did for the reference picture! It is so retro and adorable! And that beehive *sighs*
