Petunias at Como Conservatory

Petunias at Como Conservatory, sketch in pen and watercolor, 7 x 10", by Tracie Thompson
Okay, this? Was fun. I sat in the Sunken Garden of the Conservatory, and it smelled amazing in there, full of lilies and roses, but I painted the humbler little petunias along the path. Got fast and loose, fudged the colors where I felt like it, talked to all the people who stopped to see what I was doing.

I want to do more of this, simply for how relaxing it is. Also, the Japanese Garden at Como Park is so lovely. I'd never seen it before today.
