Sketching Spring Crocus en plein air

Just a short video of my afternoon sketching the first crocus of spring. Plein air painting season is just around the corner! Yay! So far the most interesting thing out there are the snow crocus so they get a page in my sketchbook.

You might like to visit my Plein Air Painting Resource Page in anticipation of getting out there!

Here's a little plein air crocus painting from a few years ago that has gone to a collector.

See you tomorrow !

The crocus are a sure sign of spring, very pretty! You have a wonderfully informative blog filled with beautiful paintings!

I don't think I've seen crocus before, though I've heard of them. What lovely flower sketches and paintings, Jan!

Thanks so much for visiting Jeanne!

Never seen crocus! Oh my you must be where it's warm all year!

You have no idea how the first crocus in late February can make one's heart leap after a long dreary winter. It's one of the great delights of spring!
