When I want to draw some plants I head to Jardin botanique Roger-Van den Hende. It’s a very large garden that is something of a large library of plants rather than a coordinated esthetic garden. So many textures, so many shapes.
Our sketching group met there on Thursday and the weather couldn’t be better. Lots of sun, little wind, and it was warm enough that even I was searching for some shade. I was planning on drawing flowers but didn’t draw a single petal. Funny how fickle the sketching eye is and I went down a different path. We’ve scheduled a sketchcrawl in the garden for July so many I’ll get to the flowers then.
