Flowers, Hyacinth, Ann Hyde

Sketch - pen + watercolour

Not in flower at this time of year, 
but we have some in our garden...a real pleasure 
to see them when they appear and their scent is gorgeous.


  1. These make me want to get my ink pens out. Do you put the ink down first, then colour or the other way around?....Just curious as these look so fresh.

    1. Hi Maggie, I did a light pencil outline as a guide. Then did the watercolours, when they had dried I added the pen. I would sometimes approach it differently with pen then watercolour, just depends on how I feel at the time.

  2. Hyacinths always say spring to me, so it is nice to see them right now. Lovely!

  3. I love your single flower watercolors! Such a lovely statement of life and spring!

  4. Very dainty and precious sketching water painting..

  5. I have finally put my painting up as have had such a busy summer.

    1. Thanks Carol Ann. I'm going to be catching up soon with the blog and will look for your work.
