April Flower

I did this little painting at the Austin Botanical Garden two weekends ago. There was a wedding, a meetup group of sketchers and the usual garden enthusiasts. I worked on masa paper wrinkled and covered with a few coats of gesso. I used both watercolor and gouache.
I went home this past weekend because I have to try a case the day after Mothers Day. It was a good time spent with the family. On Sunday we cooked and hung out at my youngest sister's place. The light was beautiful in the morning and afternoon. At one point my niece's daughter was painting with me. I think she had fun. This image is from my sketchbook. I really should have posted her paintings but I didn't have time to photograph them.
