I had tried to make time for days to paint this particular angle of our garden, as one would see it coming up the driveway from the road. My kurrent klass teacher, Cathy Johnson, has us doing landscape homework this week, so I had a valid excuse to grab my paints, my three-legged REI stool, and my kit, and set up in a shady patch to catch the wide range of hues and textures. It might've been better had I subdued the forest that is maybe 150 feet beyond, but I thought it'd be a nice dark contrast to make the garden pop. According to many other students, it was a good idea. This is done with Derwent Inktense Pencils, a waterbrush, white gel pen, and some gouache on a Stillman Birn Alpha watercolor book.
