daily painting | blue vase

Spring flowers on my coffee table, from the farmer’s market, in a vibrant blue vase which was a generous gift from a dear friend. I started with watercolor, but it wasn’t quite working so I jumped in with pastels and charcoal and it got  livelier. The composition was accidental—my sketchbook leaning open against the vase, the pencil, some votive candles, orange napkin in the corner. The way the light came through the window, backlighting the arrangement, was lovely.
