Blossom in Autumn!

I always like to challenge myself.  One of the hardest things to do is paint white.  Well I find it hard, lol.  So for my 10 Minute Warm Up at Diana Evans link up is painting white blossom.  Yeah, I know it is autumn here.  But I have actually got blossom on my apple trees!  I think it is because we have had a drought and it finally rained last week.  The trees have got confused.  I can see I was a bit heavy handed in some of the shadow areas, but overall I am pleased.  What would we do without Paynes Grey!

Thanks Diana for getting me to get my little watercolour sketch pad out.


  1. Sharon, if that's your warmup...wow!!!! It's stunning. And white is so hard to do!!

    1. Well it probably took me a little bit longer, lol!

  2. That's your ten minute warm up? Just wow, I love it.

  3. What could you do if you had an hour? That is lovely (and I find it very hard to paint white objects). The flower is fabulous

  4. oh this is so gorgeous!!! I love it and I am so thrilled you are joining me!!! Lovely work and look forward to seeing more of your stuff!!!
