The Sketchbook Challenge for March

The challenge for March is spilling over. I am taking that
to mean as example a sketch spilling over into another 
project. Such as a small fiber art quilt.
So this is my starting sketch that I have just started
work on. I am playing around with the idea of a 
small quilted piece. We will see...
I love lilies and bought  many a week ago. I sit 
here waiting for all the snow to melt, planning
my garden and decided to draw one. It was suggested to
try to look at the lily 80% of the time and at your 
paper only 20% of the time. I wasn't to sure ,
but gave it a try. I think it works!!! Now back to
painting. I'll keep you posted as to my progress.

I'll watch with interest. This week I bought a bag of Star Gazer Lilly bulbs and am having fun deciding where to plant them.

It definitely worked, Sharon. Beautiful drawing!!!
I'm also starting to think Spring. Need less snow & more color around here! :)
Wishing you a happy weekend,
Zuzu

Lilies are special. Do you grow many in your garden? And has your snow melted yet? It followed us all the way to Pt. Arena, CA, last week, but we did see many calla lilies blooming right on the roadsides along with many daffodils. I love spring and can't wait for it to arrive here!
