Little Spring Meadow

Outdoor art on the iPad is back. During my half hour work break I sat on a concrete step and depicted this little patch of meadow in front of an urban cottage, with a big tree trunk at left. The purple flowers are grape hyacinths. The pixel-applicators ("brushes") are great for adding leaf texture. The iPad surface is very reflective so I use the cover of the plastic iPad case as a shade so I can see the screen. While I was drawing, a big fat bumblebee flew by on its way to the flowers. Stereotypical Spring is depictable in authentic Plein Air bright green.
