a little bit of pink



a painting i did last year i realy enjoyed painting this one i painted it from a photograph this hydrangea also grows in my garden
i wanted to paint it while it was in full bloom ,each petal has at least 7 layers thin layers of paint added if not more to get the depth i wanted the back ground was first painted in yellow hard to believe but true i slowly added more layers of different colours gradually getting it darker showing the wood grain

Thank you for sharing your work with us Linda - you are so very talented! I love this hydrangea, and also the snow scene you painted for your mum. (Not that I don't love your other pics as well, of course!)
