Hellebore again

Hellebore again

I would to see how you set about these Carole, they are all beautiful - botanical but with atmosphere if you know what I mean. A great Xmas card too!

Your flowers paintings are always so good!

Its gorgeous Carole, background colour sets off the Hellebore flowers very well.

Beautiful painting, Carole - the background colours provide a very effective contrast...

Messy?? You are getting masterful at these Carole. Super.

Really beautiful Carole, I agree with John when he says masterful

Just brilliant Carole.

Lovely background to these super Helebores Carole, they are always so delightful to paint.

Wonderful painting again, Carole, beautiful colours and textures.

I disagree on the messy bit Carole - beautiful as always.

Totally beautiful and uses my favourite colours. Well done!

The palette and that wonderful granulation makes such a beautiful background. Beautiful

Thanks all for your lovely comments so encouraging. Marjorie I mask stamen, splash watercolours backed up by inks and granulation fluid on dark inks., a scrubbing and lifting out session and some splatters also I gently wash out some thick paint before it dries completely. Only works occasionally :)

That same old magic Carole

Absolutely, meltingly gorgeous, Carole!

Gosh Carole, there is nothing left for me to say...it’s stupendous!
