Illustration Friday: Green
This is a watercolor I created this morning in my sketchbook of a little mint plant that I bought the other day in celebration of spring. I also bought some thyme and rosemary. The plan is to grow a few culinary herbs out on our balcony. I've never had much luck with gardening, container or otherwise, so we'll see how it goes.
After completing this image, I took a walk, and was amazed anew at all the greens which encompass us: the evergreen pines and hollies, the glossy dark green rhododendron leaves, the yellow-green glow of that giant willow tree, dusty green thistle plants, fresh green of the unfurling new leaves, ferns, grass, moss… even the green logo of a Starbuck's cup in the gutter.
