|Giant in Hiding|
Watercolour 57cm x 38cm
I dont think it is that I'm slowing down but I am certainly taking a lot more considered time over my paintings since starting the challenge at the beginning of the month. I am taking two days often to finish a larger painting where as last year I did everything in one sitting. I am being more observant, and also keen to achieve what is in my mind and confident I can if I make brushstrokes with some consideration amongst those I do with gay abandon.Today I finished this Giant Hibiscus which was from a reference sent to me last year by a client taken in her garden in Spain (purchaser of my Foxglove painting).
The flower is true to the photo image but I have captured the background using my imagination. Add in two little "delicious foodies" and I am up to date.
