As nobody had sign in for his week, I thought I could post some more, especially since I read that Debby has had some internet connection problems.

These photos are again all taken by me: and you can use them for whatever you want!

Please post what you make of them here in this thread though if you want to, just because it is so nice and interesting to see how different people interpreter things... :D

This is from the same botanical garden as the windmill in the last thread...

Tulips in the botanical garden. I just thought they were so beautiful, with those colors...

After the tulips had blossomed out, the rose-garden started. This was my favorite, but they had plenty!!!!

Blossoming trees here in Rizhao

A stone pillar with wild roses, just thought it was a pleasing image... A perfect sitting place for a singing bird, perhaps?

I thought that this lily was really beautiful also when it had dried. The folds and the colors of the petals is somehow appealing also like this...

This one is taken in my hometown in Finland last summer. This cheeky fella watched us drinking coffee, and hoped probably that we would leave him something as well...

The archipelago where I grew up...

And last, the morning view from our summer cottage in Finland. I really miss that place now when living in China!!!! I have spent many happy summers there, but then, who wouldn't at a place like that?!???:lol:

Hope you will enjoy these batch of pictures, lets get some sketching going again!
Happy painting everyone!
