Soft flowers

Soft flowers

I have recently started experimenting with a new app called Procreate. So far it is behaving both more intuitively and flexibly than others I’ve tried. Thanks to the art blog of  Nicholas Herbert for bringing my attention to this app. Check out his traditional and digital artwork – pretty cool!

Hopefully, I will start posting more regularly again – spring is inspiring!

UPDATE: Thanks to Tom for commenting with this new poem for my doodle!

When April with her showers sweet
brings to an end the cold March drought
and birds through tangled bushes tweet
then do the flowers rise and shout:

“Now Spring’s upon us! Winter’s done!
Let all rejoice for we have won
Another year of life and love
beneath the Sun so bright above!”

  1. When April with her showers sweet
    brings to an end the cold March drought
    and birds through tangled bushes tweet
    then do the flowers rise and shout:

    “Now Spring’s upon us! Winter’s done!
    Let all rejoice for we have won
    Another year of life and love
    beneath the Sun so bright above!”

    Really like the bright cheeriness! Very happy to see you doodling again!

    The poem is a riff off the opening of “Canterbury Tales”, which seemed to fit quite nicely here.

  2. You mention the inspiration that spring brings. i check the weather and see my sons in Calgary are having yet another dusting of snow and -7C temperatures while here in Oman the daily high is now in the low +40s. Spring? What’s that? ;-)

    • Well, Friday was in the 20′s but this weekend has not been exactly spring-like… Still, the birds seem optimistic in their chirping so I will follow their lead! (As for Oman, that’s just a little too warm!!)

    I am looking for a lady called Hilary Farmer. I bought a watercolour of hers a couple of days ago. Does anyone know her email address so that I can find out the location of where it was painted etc. Thanks Sasha
