Wendy - beautiful sketch and what gorgeous flowers. Have never seen these before. Do they grow wild? Such a soft pink. Make such a lovely bouquet! Have a beautiful day.
Thanks Debbie, yes these flowers are native to an area a couple of hundred miles north of Perth but they naturalise here very easily and are found in many gardens and bushland. They make beautiful cut flowers.
Hi Wendy, I am catching up on all your beautiful sketches. You have beautiful lines and I love these tiny flowers, such pretty pinks! I always learn something about Australia through you...keep up the great work!
Thanks so much Celia! I'm glad you like our native flowers - hopefully you'll get to see them in the flesh one of these days!
Nice job on the flowers and the grapefruit below. Isn't it great when you can eat your subject?
Thanks Joan! Yes, it does add to getting to know your subject thoroughly doesn't it? As usual I love all your sketches - even doing this 30 day challenge I'm still not pumping them out as prolifically as you! your output is amazing - and such great quality!
I remember that plant from when we lived in Oz, but I never knew the name of it. It's an unusual name! Your sketch is great!
Thanks Sally! "Geraldton" is the town where they originate from and "wax" is due to the waxy feel to the petals. I wasn't aware that they were grown in the east as well.
nice photo, great sketch
Thanks so much Lorraine!
Nice blog, good drawings, are the basis of all art is my opinion, your blog is full of good drawings, spontaneous but well built. Congratulations. Greetings.
Hi Jose, you are very kind! thanks so much for visiting my blog!
Beautiful flower. I find that one of the benefits of painting is that I learn the names of plants and animals that I wouldn't know otherwise.
