Greenbank Farm

There's something for everybody at Greenbank Farm. Being lazy and comfort seeking, I just drew what I could see from the picnic table out front where I was enjoying an al fresco lunch from the Whidbey Pies Cafe. We got in trouble for feeding the ducks, but it served the purpose of keeping them hanging about posing for sketches. This colorful mallard had a white ring around his neck, but I lost it in the frenzy of trying to capture a duck in motion. The flower bed next to the restaurant is called "Margaret's Garden".  I  don't know who Margaret is, but apparently she has taken on the job of maintaining this cutting garden for use in weddings at the farm. I think the purple flowers I drew were Campanulas, aka bellflowers.


  1. These are great. I really like the different textures in all of them. The duck belongs in the Farm show!

  2. Such easy strokes and great color..
