Learning to Paint – Aspect of Spring

Here’s a little sketch of crocuses I painted from memory today. It’s a practice of some of the techniques I learned at Leapday.The perspective is wonky and I think some of the leaves have some interesting patterns in them.

The dominant colour is Windsor Violet and I tried to get different shades by using different amounts of paint and water. Getting the mix right felt very hit and miss, this wet on wet technique is tricky.
