Spring Garden in Progress

The reason you haven't seen much fresh new art on this By-Product is that I am working on a large house portrait for some folks in the town next to mine, and I have to spend my limited art time on this. Here is a section of the unfinished painting, with a bit of the house visible. The clients are devoted gardeners and specified exactly where all the plants and flowers should go, including the white dogwoods and blazing red azalea in bloom. This painting should be done in a few days, followed in a couple of weeks by the real flowery thing. Spring really is coming despite the "wintry mix" still falling on our area.

Watercolor and gouache (opaque watercolor) on Fabriano illustration board. Rest of the picture will be posted shortly.
