Cherry Blossom Class

Bette,Renee and Raina from my watercolor class.

Norfolk Botanical Garden

My Sadie trying to find something.

Roosters of mine.
hi, Yesterday's class was so nice, I had 8 students at NBG(Norfolk Botanical Garden). We painted cherry blossoms and pussy willow branches. Some added Common Blue butterfly to their painting. The blossoms of so many trees were out and gorgeous at the garden. Colors everywhere... so amazing. Pictured above are Bette,Renee and Raina,3 of my students and friends. Everyone did a good job. I showed them how to do a wash with mingled blue and pink and then come back into it and add water to create backwashes for pink flowers. They also drew some of the flowers. and painted them as well as the pussy willow branches... Kathy ,one of the students and friend,brought me some Lenten Roses for my yard. I've planted them and they look great!! Thank you so much Kathy!!!

Sadie stayed with John and was so fluffy and clean when I got home. He had to bathe her-- ha ha.. she had rolled in something smelly... ha ha.. poor John.

The rooster is just the beginning of a watercolor I started this afternoon.. I loved the sketch I did in my sketchbook so I thought I'd paint the rooster.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Love to you!! Diana


  1. Now that sounds like one fabulous day indeed! And Sadie looks like such a puppy in this photo with her furrowed brow. The rooster is looking quite handsome!

  2. Dear Diana - what a beautiful day you had and the best part was probably finding Sadie smelling so clean and fresh and you didn't have to do a thing. I so love your rooster - I know you are onto something special with this one. Take care and have a great week.

  3. Loved your photo's! Those roosters have attitude!!
    Good to know that Sherlock isn't the only one up to mischief!!!


Please comment, I enjoy them so much!
