Passionfruit

After few days of 36-39C heat, today was slightly cooler with the forecast promising the top temperature of only 31C (87.8F).  So I used this opportunity to sketch the passionfruit vine, which is growing against otherwise ugly metal shed.  Sadly the flowers are already gone, but there are plenty of leaves and fruit.

And here is the photo of the two page spread, because I love how the sunflower and passionfruit vine sketches look together.

      🙂 Thank you, Neil! Happy New Year to you as well. I haven’t read blogs much at all lately, so it was great to catch up on what you were doing.

      Laura, thank you. I was running out of blue paints and out of time, so decided to use lots of water and enjoy splashing the colour on the page.

      Thank you, Rachel. I’m running out of blue paints (as you can probably see in one of the photos in the previous post), so have to be light and quick.

    Your spread of sketches is so lovely. Sunflowers are a favorite of mine and you did them so well. Hope you have a wonderful new year.

      Thank you, Deborah. I fall in love with sunflowers in recent years – there was a flower stall in one of London’s market that sold gorgeous huge ones with lots of yellow petals. The year started well, thank you. Wishing you great 2016!

      Thank you. It’s the middle of summer holidays here, so I don’t get much time for painting and I’ll be happy with anything I’ll create for this challenge. I still try to do some quick sketching, but most of these sketches aren’t really worth showing to anyone.
