Urban Sketching: Pink Flowering Trees by DM7 Urban Sketching: Pink Flowering Trees by DM7

Today was a great day for urban sketching. You see, in my front yard, there are three beautiful trees that only bloom with pink flowers for a short period of time before turning green. It happens only once a year!

So, I always wanted to capture it with art because with when captured with a camera, it misses so much dynamic range information. I never liked it for this exact reason. Heck, I could write a whole article on that, but I'll do that at other time. Mind you, I am just a little obsessed with capturing everything including the colors. Oil paints were what I wanted to use, but for various reasons, I had to put them away for a time being so I pulled out watercolors instead. Here's what I ended up with.

My thoughts: It was fun. Had a little happy (not) accident, but there are no undos with watercolors. Overall, I think it turned out okay despite the fact that the paper I used was cheap in its quality. I think I will invest in better watercolor papers. This splash on the upper right corner was caused by the wind and my brush... doh. I had fountain pens with me thinking I'd draw over it once I'm done, but my guts tell me it isn't needed.

Cheers!

Pretty moody looking with your subdued colors and brushstrokes.
