Like daffodils and crocuses, wallflowers also bloom in spring time. Although wallflowers are quite small, their bright colours light up the garden.
I found this wild flower at a jungle resort during my recent visit to South East Asia. My eyes were drawn to its bright colour which made it stand out from its green foliage.
These little light purple orchids are quite common in South East Asia. Their natural tropical habitat reminds me of warm weather that’s comforting when it’s cold outside in winter.
Summer has come and gone and I can’t help feeling a bit sad :(. One of the things I miss about summer is the hint of the sweet smell coming from a couple of sweet peas that I cut and put in a glass in my living room.
Sweet peas are one of those flowers which has many faces. They look slightly different when you turn them around. It took me a while to take some good photos that capture the right angle for me to draw. This drawing is a composite of a couple of photos I took from the sweat peas I planted in my back garden.
Summer is not complete without roses. Among all of the colours available, I find ruby is the deepest and moodiest. Here is a drawing of a ruby rose on its stem.
For the flower, I used the gradient tool and layers of different tones to get the velvety effect.
…blue, according to a poem I heard when I was young. Here it goes:
Roses are red Violets are blue Sugar is sweet But not as sweet as you
Awww… so sweet 🙂
However, the violets or violas I planted in my back garden are not blue. They are yellowish and purplish.
Well, they come in so many colours. Just like roses, not all of them are red. Another name commonly used to refer to the same flowers is pansy. Although there are differences between violets and pansies, they are in the same group of species. And undeniably, they have amazingly striking colours.
