Beautiful, Christine. I admire your patience!

This is so pretty, think the bud is just right, nicely balanced. I saw a rhododendron just like that yesterday. It caught my eye too.

Thank you all so much and yes I feel it was worth the wait. Sometimes you see something that you just know you have to paint.

This is a lovely detailed painting. Botanical work is something I am considering giving a try and your work definitely gives me the buzz! :-)

Two beautiful studies Christine. Lovely control of the medium.

Thank you both. Marjorie - I appreciate that and Paul I take that as a great compliment- do have a go, it is very rewarding.


Beautifully done, Christine. Love the composition (definitely worth the wait for the bud!) and the clear, luminous washes.

Hang on Studio Wall

I had to wait over a year to complete this picture as I didn't decide to put in the bud until it was too late the first year. Luckily it is my own plant!
