I came across some exquisite white roses with delicate pink edges and chose one for my "model" for Flower Study 21.

I am up in Highlands, North Carolina this week teaching a painting workshop on flowers with 14 enthusiastic flower lovers.  Here are a few of the students in our room filled with all kinds of flowers.

 I was thrilled that one of my students, Marilyn, told me she was inspired by the ongoing flower studies in my blog and it spurred her on to start her own sketchbook of daily flower studies which she shared with me at the workshop. She grows beautiful zinnias in her own garden and when she brings a small bouquet in each morning she sketches it in her sketchbook. What a beautiful way to enjoy the flowers on a deeper level while building her observational and painting skills. Way to go Marilyn!
