Hosta Leaf

Hosta Leaf

I'm no expert Sue but I do admire the way you've painted the raindrop on the leaf - it's so delicate. I can't see any greenfly which is good and amazed that there's no slug damage; how does your daughter prevent that?

Thank you, Jane. The greenfly is at the top of the drop! She goes out at night & picks of slugs & snails putting them in the council compost bin (not her own compost bin).

Posted by Sue Mann on Thu 02 Aug 15:40:45 I see the greenfly. Don't like them much so don't look for them - either that or I need new glasses! But still I like that raindrop. And thanks for taking a look at my seascapes.

Good idea Sue! I like your leaf and the water droplet, well done.

Thank you Carole. I must admit I was quite pleased with it as I've only been painting watercolour for 12 months.

Lovely painting and great water droplet and greenfly.

Thank you, ladies. I do appreciate your comments, they encourage me to continue.

This was originally a photo, taken by my daughter, of a Hosta leaf with rain drop & green fly. It's done on Saunders 640gms. with Maimeriblu watercolours. I'd appreciate any constructive feedback. Thanks for looking.

About the Artist
Sue Mann

Returned to art in 2012 having done virtually none since school. Started with watercolour but added oils & now enjoy both. Always enjoyed arts & crafts but had concentrated mainly on the crafts. The art was always part of the textiles - painting with yarn - felting, knitting, weaving etc.
