Flowers from my dearies


My third year-students finished school two days ago. They are a bunch of lovely young people, with intelligence and hearts enough to change at least a part of the world for the better, and I wish them all the luck from now on. Actually, I´m not too worried about them, I know they will do well. But I know Monday will be an empty day at work, now that they are gone...

Anyway, I thought I´d draw some of the flowers in the beautiful bouquet they gave me, just to keep that memory in my sketchbook...

12 x 17 cm, Copic Multiliner SP and Kremer watercolours on sketchbook page.

Glorious bouquet, and such sweet sentiment.

Beautiful painting! The colors make it pop off the page and I love the loose touches, like the spatters, against the strong lines.
