Everyday Matters Challenge # 250 - Draw Something You Got For Free

This little artificial plant is pot is only about 6" high and 7" wide. To be so small it is none the less become one of  my favorite treasures. It brightens up any corner where it is placed. I just happened to be where someone was cleaning out stuff and I came home with it. I am glad of this challenge because I have wanted to draw and piant this little treasure for a while. Now I have this little memory captured. This was done with watercolor pencils on watercolor paper in my new homemade journal 11 x 7 1/2" which has watercolor and sketching paper in it.


  1. Oooooo, nice watercolor pencil sketch! Love the colors. Keep the memory.

  2. What a pretty painting, Ramona.
    One never knows when one will
    find a treasure among other people's
    "stuff." And now, you've doubled
    your treasure. I like the violet
    flowers and those leaves...


  3. Lovvely sketch - and how nice to have a plant that is always in flower!

  4. Very lovely! Always nice to be in the right place at the right time! Your watercolor flowers brightened this snowy, blustery day here in Minnesota. Thanks!

  5. Nice work, Ramona! Look forward to seeing more cheerful sketches!

  6. Aren't artificial flowers/plants the best? I am definitely no gardener at home. In fact, we're known to stick fake flowers in our front porch planter because the high winds dry everything up. In the winter, we put poinsettias in.

    Glad you had a chance to sketch your favorite planter. Very nice job with the watercolor pencils!
