Birds-eye primrose, Teesdale

Yes a delightful choice of colours Emma, lovely drawing skills.

Lucky you Emma, I have never seen one of these beauties! A lovely painting.

A lovely piece, well-composed, with a beautiful palette.

Beautiful subject, Emma. Love the composition and the delicate colours.

A first for me too, never seen one before Emma, it’s beautifully painted.

The texture you’ve created on those rocks is excellent, I want to reach out and touch them.

Thanks all for the comments. The plants grow in quite remote areas of limestone in northern England, but you can find them if you do your research! The path from Bowlees to High Force in late May is not too strenuous and gives a good chance of seeing these and other rare beauties.
