Bountiful Blossom Watercolour 425gsm Saunders Waterford Bright White Paper 28.5cm x 38cm
On Wednesday morning I painted my Christmas Card painting (kept secret to print for family and friends first) A friend who joined me for painting that day brought along some of photos. I loved a photo she had taken sometime ago of blossom. Neither of us knew from what tree but I think it may be Cherry. I started a second painting that day and have taken another two days to finish it. I referred to the photo to get a bit of a likeness but used my imagination to fill the paper with shapes and colour until satisfied . This is my favourite way of working and a reference can be used many times over as no two works could ever be the same.
