Japanese Quince and Baby’s Breath Spinea

Almost April? Already? I can’t believe how fast March went by! And because I love my Japanese wall calendar, for this page I got inspired from the March calendar illustration, some beautiful blooming red Japanese Quince flowers.

Aproape aprilie? Deja? Nu-mi vine sa cred cat de repede a trecut luna martie! Si pentru ca iubesc calendarul meu de perete cu flori japoneze, am ales ca aveasta pagina sa fi inspirata de ilustratia din calendar a lunii martie, o ramura cu flori de gutui inflorite.

I had to work really fast to finish this page, as time became very precious lately.  This is one of the reasons why I’ve chose to use watercolor and not acrylics or mixed media.

A trebuit sa lucrez foarte repede pagina asta, pentru ca in ultima luna timpul a devenit foarte pretios. Acesta e unul dintre motivele pentru care am ales sa lucrez in acuarela si nu in acrilice sau mixed media.

First I did a very fast pencil sketch and added color using Koh-i-noor watercolor pencils.

Prima oara am desenat o schita rapida in creion si apoi am adaugat culoare folosind creioanele acuarelabile de la Koh-i-noor.

Then shadows had to define the drawing. And in the end, some highlights were added for a more realistic look.

Umbrele au definit desenul. Iar la sfarsit, cateva accente luminoase au fost adaugat pentru a face desenul mai realist.

Well, that’s it for March project. Now let’s move to April, when I intend to get back to portraits. That if I have enough time!

Ei bine, cam asta a fost proiectul lunii martie. Acum ne uitam spre aprilie, cand intentionez sa ma intorc la portrete. Asta daca o sa am destul timp!
