A few Winter Beauties

At this time of the year it is the little delicate flowering shrubs that excel, with their gentle colouring and powerful aromas.

I thought I would try drawing and painting a few gems from the February garden with my new iPad. It is going to take quite a bit of getting used to but I am taking the first few steps.

The first three are drawings of Dogwood stems, perennial wallflower Erygeron “Bowles Mauve” and the seed heads of fennel drawn on the app “Drawing”.

The next two are paintings created using an app called “Brushes” and show Fennel seed heads, With Hazel “Jelena” and Daphne bhuloa “Jacquelin Postill”.

  1. Wow – those are lovely. It looks like you’re getting the hang of that IPad just fine. 🙂

  2. I am really enjoying discovering new ways of painting and drawing with it. I have discovered that you must accept it is a totally new way to create pictures so you must set out with an open mind.
