I joined Sheryl's Urban Sketch Group at a private country residence on one of
Belfast's Open Garden Days.
A dense field of daisies lined a gravel path
that wound its way down to a lily pond, flowers on each side.
Stopping to look closely, for an extended time while sketching,
varieties in the shapes & arrangements of petals!
In the whispering breeze, they nodded and danced.
These were not your clichéd stereotypical daisies!
A sea of daisies, going back & down, quite far off the path,
yellow orange caps & sparkles of white
peeking through the daisy foliage in the foreground.
My mother loved daisies....
I sketched with ink while standing, added color later.
A fashion show by ladies, clad in crisp summer
outfits. Hats, hats, hats!
Like the NYC Easter Parade!
Eavesdropping from a distance: At the Information Table:
One of my original sketches didn't quite work out.
So, I made a memory illustration later.
