This is a small sketch, done with no drawing, of Petunias form my garden.
I find these small sketches help to start off a days painting before going onto paint a larger piece.
By using flowers as your subject, there is less to worry about in getting proportions right, so leaves you to enjoy the actual painting process more, learning different techniques, and how colours will work together on a larger piece. Simly having fun.
I also find very often that with a mount & small frame, a collection of these small sketches look wonderful put together on a wall.
