How are you today?
Here’s a beautifu fresh spring sunshine! I’m very lucky. It makes this confinement less gloomy!
I only have a very small piece of a page left to finish this concertina sketchbook, so I have to make something that fits the previous painting, and that’s linked to the previous painting.
So as it’s spring time and the magnolia trees are in full bloom, I decided to draw some branches of magnolia.
I used a watersoluble graphite pencil (Viarco Portugal) to draw the branches, because it makes a nice grey teture when you paint on it.
I’ve also drawn the flowers with that, but that was a bad idea: of course it made the flowers look grey as well. So I erased them (not on the video) and drew them again in normal pencil.
I made a blue sky and some green background, to link this sketch to the previous one.
