This backyard view is overwhelmingly beautiful. One that I will revisit later. I am certainly not able to get something worth posting after only 20 minutes. I am finding that I am sitting for at least an hour or more. This one was almost 2 hours and I am not pleased with it. I think it looks overworked and I would love to revisit it and try to use only a minimal amount of lines and shading to try and capture the same feel.
The color was added with watercolor pencils allowing me to smear the color and to put lines and shape in on top of it.
Any time plants are the subject, it can be very overwhelming to try and pick what to emphasize to get the idea across.
