Keeping it Loose

This is a thank you gift for my Auntie with whom I stayed whilst in England earlier this month. I have posted it off and hope she likes it when it gets there in a week or two. It was inspired from an image in a newspaper advertising a potted tulip Magnolia and picking up on how lovely she thought the plant was I knew this would be a great choice to paint. There is already a Poppy and Daisy work I painted about 4 years ago on her sitting room wall above the fire and whilst I can see that my work has matured I am pleased to say that my style of keeping it loose has remained.

  8. These days, in a book of a watercolour painter, I found a quote by Einstein.
    "Genius is when an idea and its execution happen simultaneously"
    Watercolor painting loose and spontaneous let us feel this thrill ....
