VSW: Hahnemühle Floral Post Cards, 1


Working this months Virtual Sketchwalk
(all flowering thangs) on Hahnemühle Post Cards,
mostly directly in ink again, as I have no time so am doing quick sketches.
Pepper trees remind me of Canoga Avenue in the San Fernando Valley,
which was once lined with them.
Mitchell stole this one for his desk… Reminds him of his childhood too!


Posies in Super5 Dublin with inks and liquid watercolor washes.


CC’s Hollyhocks, and no, I did not do them justice!

I tell you, painting flowers is the antidote to all the crap news in the world!

  2. I don’t recall ever seeing a Pepper Tree in art! Your long, trailing leaves, and pepper corns watercolor postcard is lovely!
    Many years ago when we bought our house (35 yrs ago) there was a HUGE Pepper tree in one of the back corners. It was such a messy tree! Nothing grew under it, and because we had to get it topped every few years the trunk got huge, and the overall shape wasn’t that nice. The original owners, or builder we’ll never know for sure planted that Pepper tree right under the power lines that run across our back fence.

    After losing power because of the branches being blown into the wires one too many winters we had the tree removed. I’ve never missed the mess the tree made, or the loss of power, but it was pretty, and I miss that, and my children missed their tire swing. Thanks for the reminder of that!
