Such a beautiful study Carole. I had a similar shrub in my holiday cottage last week and watched it progress from buds to full flowers. Well observed and such detail Diana

perfect! excellent drawing and painting Carole

Thanks Diana and David, this is my favourite rhododendron, the colours are so different and the petals have very frilly edges. Hope you are refreshed from your holiday Diana :)

Another superb botanical Carole, your attention to detail really does these subjects full justice.

You always do the flowers justice Carole! Beautiful!

This is really beautiful Carole. Love the colors and lovely loose washes
