Sketchbook fun

Towards the end of last year I began a sketchbook to document  the garden and anything else that took my fancy.  I love the concept of journaling but have always been a bit hit and miss with my sketchbook work.

I bought a Strathmore watercolour journal and I was off.  My first sketch was done…

And here are some sketches I’ve done recently, ending up with the Plum blossom sketch of which more in the next blog.

    1. I’m so glad this has inspired you just as I was inspired by journals I have seen. Nice to be talking to my namesake…almost!


  1. Ann – these are really beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing them. I am a gardener, too and someday I’ll be brave enough to start doing flower portraits.
