A sketch drawn from nature’s bits and pieces, strewn about my yard, while I delighted in the breeze.

Very nice! Minunat!
That, Elena, would make a fabulous tattoo!!!!
Come to think of it, I guess it would! You are welcome to it:)
Un dibujo muy sugerente, Elena. Y muy bello!!!
Thank you Maria!
The gentle beauty of Black and White!
While I admire bl & wh photos, I have to remind myself every once in a while that it works for drawings too;) Thank you Robert!
Oh much evoked from one sketch Elena, it dances.. ❤
Love that:) Thank you!
My goodness I swear you’re more talented everytime I visit you Elena 🙂
So nice, thank you Geoff:)
Thank you, Cath!
Reblogged this on About Sketching and commented:
I WISH I had done this sketch. Kudos to you , Elena!
Love this spontaneous , sensitive, sketch.
Thanks so much Kathleen.
That is delightful. The perspective is wonderful – trailing off into the distance like the rooting of a story… fantastic!
Oh, I like that notion:) Thank you Karen!
Brings forth a feeling of autumn in me. And, yes, garden of course. It’s such a beautiful drawing, rich in tones and lovely details.
Thanks much, Otto.
Amazing! I can see it moving and feel the warm sunlight,excellent shading:)
THanks so much!:)
What wonderful drawing! Perfect! Congratulations, dear Elena for creation! I like very much.
Thank you so much for sharing with us.
Have a wonderful day, dear Elena and a new week, exceptional! Love and blessings.
Big hugs, with love, Stefania. 🙂
So pleased that you like it Stefania! Thank you! I hope your week is exceptional as well:)
Quite whimsical and so full of depth. Love it. As others have said, I can feel a cool breeze from it – which is most welcome here in muggy, dull heat!
Thank you Steven! When I made this drawing, there WAS a breeze. Now I’m feeling the muggy blanket that you are experiencing too. Hoping for breezes for the both of us:)
Lovely, I can feel the breeze 🙂
Wonderful. Thank you James:)
Wunderschön wünsche einen schönen Sonntag lieber Gruß Gislinde
Thank you Gisel!
This is a lovely, sensitive drawing and the inclusion of the secateurs, which could have been awkward, actually enlivens the piece.
Thank you so much. I’m so pleased that you enjoy the drawing, especially since you are both a visual artist and an artist of the garden.
Beautiful & very poetical!
Thanks so much!
Beautiful! I just love the shading.
Thanks so much Jess!
I’m covered in bits and pieces like this Elena having spent time with my secateurs out in the garden I need a good shake down in the breeze 😉
Lovely drawing …
The breeze will help you out;) Thanks much Poppy!
Excellent. Really like the feeling.
Thank you KC!
It’s refreshing to see an illustration from you, Elena. Looks great!
It’s true, illustration has not been front and center lately. Thank you Millie!
Beautiful, Elena! I was just thinking about you today and wondering what you were up to! And here’s a new post from you. 🙂 I wanted to also ask you how you went about getting your book published???
Hi Patsy! Do you mean “Portrait of a Girl” or the two I’ve illustrated? If you mean “Portrait..” I originally had a publisher, but stars did not align and in the end, I decided to self publish with Lulu. If you’d like to know more, shoot me an email: email@example.com
I was thinking of “Portrait of a Girl.” I forgot you had done illustrations for other books. 😉 Thank you! I will e-mail you.
And I thought you constantly paint.. did not think you have spare time for gardening.. No need to say how tidy this one is.. beautiful 🙂
I don’t spend too much time gardening-just planting and watering mostly-weeding, not so much;) Thank you Doron!
That is sufficient in my book everything we do is with as much as we want too and that is great call it freedom of choice. I can’t do gardening now a day and I appreciate any little at all. It is great to see new life and colourful garden, you doing great Elena 🙂
Thank you Doron:)
You have a wonderful way of interpreting the world – beautiful drawing.
Thanks so much Richard.
Such a lovely drawing Elena! 🙂
Thank you Adrian:)
I like this – a lot!
I’m glad! Thank you Louis.
Beautifully done, Elena… I can feel the breeze too! 🙂
I’m glad! Thanks Marina:)
This is really wonderful – beautiful work, Elena
Thanks so much Anette.
Love the dreamy feel of this sketch. Such wonderful details and depth.
Thanks much Janell:)
I couldn’t agree more with Elisa’s comments…”who needs photography when you can do that?!?!” I’m always amazed when I visit your site!!
I need photography-at least the way you make it work! Thanks so much Robin!
Your delight reflects 🙂
I’m glad you can see it:) Thank you.
Oh glorious is the talent God blessed you with.
Thanks so very much:)
Lovely Elena, all the familiarity of my garden each weekend – except poison ivy that I’ve been suffering with for the past 10 days. I like your garden better. Wonderful drawing, perfect treatment of the values – love it.
Oh no. Poison Ivy is wretched! Hope you are feeling far less itchy soon. Thanks Mary!
Beautifully assembled bits and pieces!
Lovely use of lights and darks – great job!
Beautiful! It makes me dream!
I’m glad! Thank you Kristel:)
what a joy to draw things from own garden! Pencil and nature go very well together 🙂 Nice !
Pencil and Nature are great friends. Thanks:)
who needs photography when you can do that?!? 🙂
Let me just say, I wish I were a better photographer;)
Beautiful style to those leaves and flowers! I particularly love the perspective of the large branch and those garden shears.
