St John’s Wort from Rebecca’s Garden
There was such a colourful display of these flowers in my friend’s garden that I I couldn’t resist drawing some sketches and taking some photos, then completing the painting at home. I used watercolour (a difficult medium for me) on hot pressed paper, which I found very tricky as the washes didn’t seem to flow very well. It’s a bit garish and I think it may have been better on other paper.
