  • Very sensitively done, and wonderful colour. Please could you tell me what size it is?

  • Lovely sensitive painting, Diana. Nice to see your work again...I haven't been logging in regularly this year so far. Glorious colour. looks like magnolia, but not sure that it matters, it is so delightful, such beautifully shaped buds....Ain't nature great! And Roll on Spring. Best wishes to you....

  • Really beautiful! Agree with Alan, simple composition that works so well because it is so sensitvely painted. Gorgeous rich colours.

  • Size added Lesley; sorry I forgot. Thank you all for the kind comments. I've been struggling with reds so ditched all of them and bought a new set of transparent colours. I think it worked, well it certainly helped. Just two reds Alan and a touch of blue in the flowers. Yes Ruth it is magnolia. I can never remember the name of it when I need it. We call it tulip tree.

  • Was Permanent Rose one of the reds, I wonder? Whatever it was, they've worked well - like the touches of drybrush in some of the petals. And the background.

  • It was indeed Robert. Permanent rose overglazed in places to brighten it with scarlet lake.

  • This is so striking, I really, really like it. Wonderful shapes and colours and you've done the "lost nand found" edges beautifully. Lovely reds.

  • You keep sneaking these paintings onto the gallery and I keep missing them! This is absolutely wonderful. The lost and found edges make the painting, as it becomes so interesting. The branches are beautifully depicted. Perfect background as well. I hope my magnolia flowers as well as this one this year!
