This weekend’s NYC Urban Sketchers virtual event was gardens, famous gardens throughout the world. Since I was working on that day I couldn’t travel so I depicted a non-famous one the day before the event. I found a very intense gardener (Google images) and combined her with some of my photos of flowers from last year’s trip to Amsterdam.

The End.

Pre-prepared Gelli printed ( acrylic craft paint used) background on an accordion folded pamphlet from a museum. Zebra Fine Brush Pen; Pitt Brush pens mostly; Molotow and Posca acrylic paint markers. All sketching and most of the painting with the markers was done on location. What was unfinished was later done at home.

One Saturday in November I arrived at the Art and Design High School and sketched all day. Lots of models and zillions of Sketchers. Heaven. I had a plan and a long accordion folded pamphlet that was covered with a background of gelli printing. I even think the sun was shining that day also.
