Apple blossom


Such beautiful, delicate blossom Carole. Stunning against the black paper.

Stands out very nicely on the black, Carole - you haven' t posted for a while, are you finding it difficult to get motivated, like me?

As usual so well observed and beautifully painted Carole. Good to know you are around.

Beautiful painting, Carole, as always - I've missed seeing your paintings on this site, it seems to have been a while...

Lovely blossom, Carole.

Your usual stunning work Carole, it’s beautifully drawn!

Lovely botanical pastel

Thank you all very much for your kind words they mean a lot. That's right Marjorie, painting has taken a back seat for a while, not much inspiration, I am pursing another hobby, and that is making mouldings (small) for mixed media projects with acrylic and colour waxes. It has been so interesting and kept me going through this horrible lockdown.


Beautiful Carole, it's your usual high standard of botanical art, looks great against the black background, lovely work 👍😀

Beautiful Carole, great skill needed to produce work of this quality.

I couldn’t believe that was pastel until I magnified the image, amazing talent!

Gorgeous, perfect on that black lustrous background! Really miss apple blossom, apples don't grow here at all!

A superb painting Carole , using an interesting combination of Mediums. Love it.

Just exquisite, and so very elegant. Beautifully observed and executed, Carole!

So beautiful Carole, the black really highlights the delicate blooms

Thank you again for your encouraging comments, much appreciated.

Beautifully drawn Carole - excellent !

Glad to see you posting your beautiful work again, Carole. This is super!

Beautiful Carole

A beautiful botanical study of Apple blossom well done Carole

Such a beautifully observed study. I love the curling of the petals.

Exquisitely painted Carole. So effective on the black, makes the whole thing shine.

Thank you ever so much for all your kind comments, a real boost!

As always stunning work.

Love the way this beautiful delicate blossom shows up against the background.
