Sketches 22 and 23

#22  After the Fire
I did the above sketch this morning from this photo I took in 2007 of some grass trees recovering from a fire earlier in the year.
#23 Fruits of Neglect
My poor standard ice-berg roses should be looking beautiful at this time of year but they've been terribly neglected and instead are a mass of rose hips.
After doing two sketches today, I'm still one behind - will try to do another two tomorrow to catch up.
Check out other participants' work in the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge here.


  1. Wendy - your drawing skills are simply superb. Those rose hips are just lovely. I have some neglected ones too waiting to be painted in my journal. Thanks for sharing yours. Hope you are having a wonderful day.

  2. Glad to see you're keeping up with the 30/30, Wendy! And I enjoyed reading about you in the last post as a tree hugger. Sending hugs from Florida, Diane

  3. The rose hips made an excellent subject to paint, really beautiful. And I really admire your drawing skills, so accurate !
