Here’s another doodle on the same theme as last time… flowers, soft blending and exploring the relationship of colours next to and overlapping each other. Still enjoying using Procreate. In fact I have done a few more doodles but haven’t posted them yet. I will try to post another this week.

Check out this photography blog with some lovely detail shots of flowers, architecture and more.

UPDATE: Original poem from Tom in the comments! Captures the image very well – thanks Tom!

Floral embers smoulder, bursting fire
beneath the gusting winds of warming Spring
raising up the Year King on his pyre
to burn within the sacred garden’s ring
where arms of leafy green are raised up high
to welcome back the Eastern-rising sun
rebirth is in the air across the shire;
Winter’s reign at last is finally done!
So brightly burn the floral fires today
that only for a moment will they last
yet toward the Summer they will light our way
melting Winter’s grip so cold and fast.
So the Year King burns, for he is slain,
Yet all that dies will one day live again.

    Lots of layers in this one, playing with mostly pagan imagery and ideas. Dunno if it works or not!

    Lovely flowers–they really do look a bit like burning coals!
