Hosta Blooms

Day 2.5 of workshop (evening painting session)

The first signs of spring in my garden are the emergence of Hosta after a long winter. I start my mental preparation for the long months ahead of yard work. The way they cover and multiply year after year without fail has always been reassuring.

In taking what I had learned from the morning demo I decided to try the method out on a plant i have a ton of at the house, Hosta. Overall, I think it turned out nice. Focused my attention mainly on the hosta bloom rather than the mighty leaves. This was a great challenge but so much fun.

Be sure to SQUINT and paint shapes, not petals! - PS
