Watercolour Sketches: Herbs and Citrus
Herbs and citrus just seem to go well together, don’t they? Lavender and limes, rosemary and oranges … something so lovely about those combinations. Sketching them out in watercolour for a mini-project is simply a pleasure, and here is a bit of what I’m exploring so far …
I’m just getting to know several herbs better in the sketchbooks, and experimenting with slightly different styles to work out which would be best for this particular project. Lavender and rosemary — and basil but that’s another story — are particular favourites of mine and I grow them in pots or in the garden wherever I put down roots (ouch, pun unintended), so it’s a sweet joy painting them. This is a mini-project-in-progress, so look out for more scatterings of herbal sketches appearing in this blog in the next couple of weeks!
