Finally blessed with a perfect warm day to do some watercolor sketching, the group headed out on the White Oak Trail in search for woodland wildflowers…and oh boy, did we find a treasure of them!
Mesmerized by the blue-violet glow of the bluebells, the group decided to study these wildflowers.
As we sat on the forest floor painting, the birds above sang, providing music for our enjoyment. Meanwhile, the wind roars through the trees giving a mighty sound and the trees respond with a sway.
This huge white trillium was found off trail next to the stream. We also found bloodroot, spring beauty (white and pink), toothwort, may-apple, squill, yellow-violet, and some immature jack-in-the-pulpits.
Here is my watercolor and micron sketch. It was amazing to see all of the beautiful artwork from the group. I’m sorry I didn’t take a photo of more art. Each person had a unique interpretation of what they saw and it was just outstanding!
