Gardens & Parks, MSU Horticultural Gardens, by Rob Kulas

Well we have had a couple of rainy days on top of all the snow still on the ground.
As mother nature works things out I thought I would post a sketch I did last spring.
While visiting the MSU Horticultural Gardens in East Lansing MI. I had a chance to do a quick watercolor in my Moleskine. It was a fantastic warm day and sitting on a park bench while painting this was loads of fun.

Watercolor. watercolor pencil, fountain pen in Moleskine about 5x7

  1. wonderful sketch and colors Rob. I really like the fading away of the greens in the background like mist all over. Sketching outside is sure fun

  4. I love the warm tones of this painting, and the perspective. And the shadow on the inside of the pot.

  6. I love your painting with the off-centre placement of the flowers and column, and the shadows to give them depth and reality. The colours are so warm I can feel the warm day you were enjoying, and I too admire the fading background to highlight the foreground so well. So much enjoyed looking at this.
