Barbra Joan said...

Judy, yes Spring is here and must be especially lovely where you are.
your watercolor forsythia is so fresh and should I say "Springy"? BJ

Lynn said...

Beautifully done Judy...I can almost smell them. ;-)

renate said...

Eenvoud siert de kunst. Heb jij dat spreekwoord uitgevonden?
Groetjes!!

Jane said...

Oh yes, Forsythia is a must in Spring, and you did this one beautifully. Have a nice sunday Judy.

JANE MINTER said...

beautiful judy !

Hi Judy, This is beautiful - I find work loosens up if you don't sketch them in first, do you find that? This painting really sings ♪♫♪♪ 'Spring' ♪♫♪♪

Cathy Holtom said...

I like how you used the different yellows on this, lovely sketch!

So beautifully delicate, Judy!

DEKAKADO said...

Zo'n moeilijke bloem om te schilderen zo op papier zetten noem ik klasse! Groetjes, Marleen.

Gerda said...

Wow schitterend zeg, wat mooi!!! Ik kon meteen zien wat het was en dat zonder poltlood schets. Petje af hoor!!!

Judy said...

Dankje Renate! Je verzint mooie spreekwoorden! ;)

Thank you Jane, yes forsythia is spring for me too!

Thank you Jane!

Thank you Ann! Yes I find that too, I just started to paint and they turned out fine! Love your song! :)

Hi Cathy, thanks for your comment!

Thank you Kathryn!

Dankje Marleen! Ze zien er bedrieglijk makkelijk uit maar dat zijn ze zeker niet!

Hallo Gerda, dankje voor je reactie! Ik heb meteen een kijkje genomen op je blog!

Wat mooi - en dat zonder schets - de lente springt van mijn scherm.

Sandra said...

This is completely gorgeous! Maybe you should think about an art journal. This would make a perfect entry :0)

Lydie said...

Très joli et finement réalisé.
Une bonne idée suggérée par Sandra. Bisous !

Blaga said...

A very lovely sketch, carrying so much spring character! In the last few days forsythias came into bloom creating joyful yellow spots everywhere around...

Judy said...

Dank Brigitte!

Sandra, I have been thinking the same! I already called these posts Sketching...

Lydie, merci et bisous!

Thank you Blaga! Spots of yellow here as well including in my garden, joyful indeed!

Susan said...

They have such a wonderful feeling of spontaneity - I can almost detect their fragrance!

John Simlett said...

Hello Judy - I've just come across via Sandra's link. I just love the innocent forsythia - first shrub to wake, it can only see the clear goodness of Spring ahead. All captured in your lovely picture.

I've just become a follower, I hope you don't mind.

Pat & I love Holland... it's where my art first took off!

Pat said...

Gorgeous!
Love forsythia and you've done it proud xx

Judy said...

Thank you Susan! Glad you enjoyed my little piece of spring!

Hi John, thank you! I am a follower of your blog too now, I love your stories behind the works you show!

Thank you Pat, I'm glad you like them!

Ann said...

Gorgeous forsythia!

Cynthia Schelzig said...

oh this is a beauty and spring is in the air...this is lovely!!

Judy said...

Thanks Pat and Cynthia!

Sketchbook Squirrel said...

The Forsythia is looking wonderful just now and this piece reflects the exuberance of this spring time classic!

Irina said...

So full with the spring. So tender. And I like you did not make pencil work!

Maga Fabler said...

Very well done Judy, you catch 3D.

Judy said...

Thank you Jarnie, Irina and Maga!
Maga, in real life the 3D is much better, on the pc screen it looks flatter.

Kara K. Bigda said...

I just stumbled upon your blog (from the Paint and Draw Together site) and I LOVE it! Your work is so fresh and delicate -- very beautiful! You've inspired me to grab some of my forsythia and give it a whirl. :)

Judy said...

Thank you so much, Kara! Your work is fabulous!
