I think this may be the first time I have been happy with shading and form creating in yellows. The columbine photo was taken in the shade garden at UT El Paso’s chihuahan desert gardens. Columbines do well here out of direct sun and bloom in early spring. I sketched it first in my sketchbook but didn’t sketch on the watercolor paper because I didn’t want the pencil lines to show through the yellow pigment.
Here it is on its own.
