Back garden drawing

Plenty of opportunity to draw in my back garden at the moment with the weather being so good. I drew each of the plant detail spreads over several days, trying to find different leaf shapes and tones of green. With the plant pages I just used direct watercolour but I put down some pencil lines first on the one with the backs of the houses.

 Drawn in a Stillman and Birn 10 x 8 inch Zeta sketchbook
