Meerkerk Garden Gumdrops

Whidbey Island Sketchers met at Meerkerk Rhododendron Gardens last Friday. Here's a couple of my sketches:

The grouping of gumdrop shaped trees in the rock garden at Meerkerk are an interesting arrangement to paint at any angle. This garden is all about round vertical and horizontal forms. Fun to watch the light define it over the hours. This sketch isn't complete, but that may be a good thing!

The Entrance building to the gardens seems to be made of slate. It has a church-like look to it. 


  1. Hi Kris! I found your blog and have really enjoyed looking through all your different work, not just block prints.
    We look forward to visiting with you about a logo.
