Sunflower Butterfly


Great colour and technique creating a lovely painting Andrea

Thank you for this Shaun, it will probably need around six months to dry now (!) - but I have enjoyed painting in oils after painting with acrylics for quite a while.

Lovely rich painting with great colour choice

Beautiful, I like the series Andrea.

Wonderfully rich painting Andrea.

Wow! Thank you SO much Heather, Paul, Carole, Paul (Dixie) and Fiona :- ) I am incedibly grateful that you have all taken the time to comment, it’s been a long day with work and then prepping for a stall I have at the weekend - so sitting down to finally relax and reading all your comments is so uplifting, I can’t tell you! Grateful thanks! Andrea x
