The Handkerchief Tree


Lovely and delicate washes .

That's lovely Carole, never heard of that tree unless it goes by another name here in Scotland.

Stunning a beautiful painting

A stunning and beautiful painting Carole , so delicate looking.

Thank you very much! It seems it doesn’t flower for about 15 yrs, I’ve had it for 3 yrs….I’ll be lucky if I live to see it flower 🥹. It is also called a ‘Dove Tree’ or Davidii after the explorer who found it in China I think.

Oh, I like this VERY much Carole!

They're beautiful trees and this is a beautiful watercolour

Absolutely beautiful.

Beautiful and very delicate ✨️

Before I looked at the name, I thought, Carole Swingler. Absolutely gorgeous, Carole.

A beautiful, delicate painting Carole. The shape of the flowers is wonderful!

You are all very kind thank you so much x

Super background for lovely floral painting. Am no flower expert but a new name to me Carole.

Love work Carole.

Love it Carole!

So pretty Carole beautifully painted. I have only seen two of them...wouldn't use them to blow my nose on though .

What a beautiful branch of flowers. Haven’t heard of this tree but I love how you nave painted the flowers and the way they droop like hankies Carole.

Thank you again for generous comments.

Beautifully painted, Carole!

That is absolutely superb, Carole!!!!

Cleverly realistic Carole.

Superb painting, the whole thing works well but I particularly like the background washes.

Beautiful watercolour Carole. Well done!

Hang on Studio Wall

Watercolour, watercolour pencils. I have this tree, waiting for the handkerchief to appear! The white look alike flowers are really white leaf bracts which turn green later in year..
