I decided to pick up my watercolour pencils and sketch a piece of the orange trumpet vine coming to life in my front yard. I really enjoy the focus that comes to me when I am sketching - it is the one time I am totally "in the moment" - my mind is usually very busy! The challenge this time was to spritz the sketch with water when I'd finished. I usually dampen the pencils as I work with them.
I was really happy with the result- go with the flow, indeed! I'll post a photo of the vine when it is in full bloom- brilliant colour all through winter is the gift from this climbing plant. No, I wasn't procrastinating- the reports are done!!
