Beautiful! so delicately painted.

Carole, where do you get your specimens from this time of year?? or are you using photos like me? either way this is lovely, The flower head is beautifully painted and I particularly like those chewed up leaves.

What a beautiful painting - I love the insect-eaten leaves.

I agree those leaves are excellent, beautifully painted.

Another beauty Carole. I too like the way you have painted the lower leaves, so natural. Damn those pesky slugs etc !!! LOL

Thank you everyone, much appreciated comments. Jorja, I have quite a few of these purple hellebore in the garden at the moment but not the white ones yet. I got those from a photo. Val these devilish little slugs are hiding everywhere! I found about ten under an old brick yesterday. I left them out for the thrushes........ aren't I cruel!!

Carole this is amazing work !!

I agree wholeheartedly with every single comment so far. In fact, I feel inspired to go pick my own helebores and have a go. I also feel quite honoured that you took the time to comment on one of my paintings, so thank you so much for that.

Thanks Steve and thank you Janet for your valuable input.

What lovely paintings, Carole. I think this is my favourite, though they are all very well done. Very delicate. Many thanks for your comments on 'Imogen'.

Gorgeous, I love the curly leaves with holes. These are one of my favourite flowers Carole and you certainly can do them justice. Just smashing.

Hi Carole! Absolutely stunning!! You are a real bothanical painter, I love them. Well done! Satu

Beautiful ...and very patient painting I expect

A stunning piece of work, Carole ! Perfect in every way.

I really do like the way you've included leaves that aren't perfect. There is truth here as well as talent.

Thank you very much David, I really appreciate your generous comments on my work.
