Brachyglottis (The Daisy Plant)

Comments

Good luck with your exhibition. A fine piece of work here.

Excellent painting, bravo for taking on a solo exhibition and I wish you great success with it.

This is lovely and best wishes for your solo exhibition ... daunting!

Love it! Even though it is not my favourite flower as it requires constant pruning by the constant gardener (me). You have got the colour of the leaves and flowers spot on, set off beautifully by the background lilac.

Great choice for the background Frank, the plant stands out beautifully. Good luck with the exhibition!

Lovely work Frank. It would be interesting to hear about your one man show ; how many pieces you did, how long it took, how it was setup, much it cost you and how it was received…. Maybe a blog page or a forum posting maybe?

Oh and good luck !

You’ve captured the intricacies of the plant very well Frank. Good luck with the exhibition.

Looks wonderful Frank and have a great time at your exhibition.

I really like this Frank.

Thanks everyone for your good wishes and comments. This photo turned out a little duller than the painting for some reason. Hanging day Monday May 2nd 😊

Good luck Frank. I’m sure you’ll do well. This is lovely.

I tried three different backgrounds for this painting before settling on this lilac colour, that’s the beauty of gouache, you can go over a colour or lift it off. 7x7 inches on HP paper.
