This is a sketchbook page I did sometime last year. It is again the looser floral method that I sometimes use in my sketchbook. This wreath was inspired by the Hydrangeas in Beacon Hill park in Victoria. I did this while sitting on a bench in the park and most importantly wanted to capture the colours and groupings of the different toned flowers.
Later I added a pressed flower to the middle of the wreath, though it is not a Hydrangea. I like the idea of incorporating pressed flowers in with watercolours.
