The Nature Artists’ Guild was privileged to paint in a private garden recently near Hinsdale.  It was a lovely place to explore, full of art and paths that led to more garden rooms.  It was difficult to decide where to sketch but I eventually chose a grouping of blue glass flowers paired with spiky succulents.  I loved the mosaic blue post in the background as well.  I started out with a pencil drawing, inked over that, then added watercolor.  At home I added just a bit of color pencil to bring out the contrast.  Enjoy!
