South African Section, UC Botanical Garden, Berkeley

Watercolor, InkJoy colored ink ballpoint pens  

I'm always game for a return visit to the Berkeley Botanical Garden in Tilden Park. It never disappoints. There's lots to see and paint.

The South African section, at its best in late winter was still a-pop with bright colors.  I sat with the sun at my back as hummingbirds dive-bombed these bright red Watsonias in a nectarian target practice.

Brought a few more variably-sized brushes than I usually carry in my portable kit. Enjoyed playing with the different marks I can make with these old friends.
