Archive for March, 2014

It is a crazy spring in this country. The day before yesterdag we had the warmest 21st of March in history and now, two days later it rains hailstones, but also rains water fortunately. I processed 20 wheelbarrows of manure (delivered by the Scouting who sells it for charity) and the rain of today is heaven sent…. Last week I painted some cherry blosom in the garden. (Obviously)dark red, permanent carmine, magenta, Indian red and English Venetian red for the leaves and blossom, sepia brown, madder brown, walnut and dark olive green for the branch.DSC00428

Spring cleaning for the garden. The daffodils, pushkinia and crocus have been able to push to the surface. In the otherwise drab and bare garden they make the color.

Different oranges and yellows; chroom/translucent, indian yellow and cadmiumĀ  yellow for the daffodil, as well as some olivegreen and madder brown. For the pushkinia olivegreen/green olive..dampened a bit by cadmium yellow and ultramarine violet/ultramarine finest. The home of the snail gets sepia brown and what’s left over from the flowers.DSC00398
