10 minute sketch apple blossom x3

I have drawn the blossom before it all blows away, from my little apple tree which will hopefully have some fruit on it this year.

 I am quite happy with the pencil drawings, but not sure about the black pen, not the right medium for a delicate blossom I think.

Oh I do love blossom it's such a lovely time of year now with all these lovely flowers popping out all over the place.  And they all smell good too. And they are pink.

I really like the drawings and I love the idea of capturing something that way before it disappears. I'm inclined to agree with you that the pencil is better - somehow it carries with it some of the evanescence of the blossom. Though the pen drawing is good in its way - it looks more like a fabric design, maybe.

Hi Pimps, Thank you for your kind comments, it's nice to draw and not be too concerned about the outcome. freedom and gung-ho approach, should lead to improvements.
