an almond orchard in watercolour


An almond orchard in pen and watercolour

A few weeks ago the almond blossoms were out in full abundance. Solid white trees, lots of bees and a wonderful smell.
You may have seen my sketch that I did of this orchard on Facebook or Instagram. I did a lot of planning on how to capture white trees in watercolour. As soon as I finished the sketch I knew I wanted to paint it again - this time in the comfort of a studio setup and on a proper piece of paper.

This lesson has a lot of skills for you to try - a perfect example of one-point perspective, lost edges, hard edges, soft edges, reserving of the white paper and dynamic shadows.

Join me in indulging in lots of lovely pastel colours!
