woyww - jacaranda blooms


 
Jacaranda trees  are in flower all over Sydney and the streets and gardens are littered with the beautiful lavender blooms.  



I couldn't resist painting a few of the falling flowers 


and a quick sketch of a branch in bloom.
Have a lovely woyww.

  1. Ah yes, they are very pretty, but ours overhangs the power lines, rather too closely, in fact.
    Probably no WOYWW this week, absolutely flat out. But let me know if you have a free Wednesday before dreaded school holidays :)

  6. Oh these look lovely, Sandra. My favourite colour too. I was watching something about the Rugby I think it was and was saying to Hubby that it looked awfully summery for Britain when he pointed out that it was actually Australia and that was why...I don't listen properly obviously, but anyway, your gorgeous weather made me very envious. Hope you are enjoying it.

  14. O what lovely flowers! I love your sketches/watercolours. I looked at your previous page too, about the basics. Beautifully done! I wish I could draw, let alone paint....
    Thanks for visiting me earlier.
    Have a lovely week and fun with your course.
    God bless you

  15. I'm sitting down for while for the first time today having just got home from my day with the twinnie munchkins.....so what better to do than catch up with as many blogs as I can? :-)
    Those are really gorgeous flowers....how lucky are you....and how talented are you to be able to capture them in your artwork.

  17. Beautiful art work, how clever you are. I have never seen these trees before so I guess they don't grow in the UK they probably don't like our climate.
    Hope you have a great crafty week, Angela x 28

  19. These are beautiful, the colours are perfect. I love spring as we have so many jacarandas here and now the red trees are in bloom every where. Your water colour is superb, I just can't get the hang of it myself.
    Have a great week,

  26. Hi Sandra de,

    What lovely watercolors! I especially love the branch full of blooms. As for my part of the world winter is in full swing (without the piles of snow) and everything is brown. I have some great photos of my honeysuckle mixed with my silver lace vine - maybe I'll have a go!

    Thank you for visiting me earlier. I'm slowly making my way around to desks. It will be an all weekend affair!
    Happy belated WOYWW,
    Peace, Kay (12)
