Rhododendron or Azalea?

Sketch Away: Travels with my sketchbook

I tried looking up rhododendron and azaleas to figure what I sketched. But between my loose sketch and the similarity of the two flowers, I can’t tell.

What I do know is that it’s lovely to sketch with friends. I stole these three images from Iva’s instagram feed. That’s Iva, Nina and me, sketching that day.

So are those rhododendrons or azalea that we painted?
