A Flower Week

I have had a lot of fun experimenting with my floral works and with Valentines day this week it was an ideal time for painting flowers, also the chosen location for this months challenge on Virtual Paintout was Elba Italy and after many hours on google street view looking for an inspiring challenge to paint I found this Oleander bush so was able to continue with my current fascination for flowers

On the Island of Elba Italy I chose the Oleander bush for my Virtual Paintout painting

I wanted to capture the delicacy of these gentle white blooms so kept the
background light and airy whereas the Climbing Rose and Lilies I used bold strokes and texture to create impact
