Bloodroot Watercolor Sketch
- McClaughry Springs Woods Bloodroot – watercolor and micron
They’re hereeeee! It’s time for some spring wildflowers boys and girls. Get excited!
It’s that fleeting time of year, when for a short time, the wildflowers pop up before the trees grow their leaves and the forest becomes shaded. Get it while it lasts.
One of my favorite spring-time wildflower is bloodroot. A white flower named for the red juice in the stem. I love how the young leaf envelopes the stem, like a blanket or a nice warm green sweater.
On the sketch it says: “Les fleus vivent dans les bois humides.” In French that means: The flowers live in wet woods.
Here are a few photos.
I also found squill in abundance…
What a beautiful carpet of flowers! Here is a close up…
I hope you enjoyed these photos and artwork, especially if you cannot get out yourself for whatever reason. I will bring the nature to you!
If you can get out, nature’s serving up some spring-time wildflowers…see them while you can.
