Today’s Simple Nature Sketch
I have been admiring these sweet blossoms on my recent walks. The way in which they cluster together remind me of miniature lilac groupings. When viewed closely, each little flower has many tiny stamens. I loved drawing this section of the flower.
The small petals are beginning to drift into the air. They resemble confetti and have festively decorated the earth below them. Millions of tiny little specks of white cover the ground, creating a soft white blanket. Soon the blossoms will disappear. Their beauty will be just a memory, with the promise of their return next spring.
I made this short little video on my third painting session of apple blossoms in my backyard. I wanted to share the beauty of my subject with you and show you why I was so inspired to paint them. Hope you enjoy it!
I am away with my dad for an appointment tomorrow, so I won’t be able to do my sketch. Back on schedule Saturday I hope. Wishing you a relaxing and wonderful weekend!
