A Fleeting Visit

Just a quick share of the finished clematis painting, 'About Turn' (in case you missed it elsewhere) as this week, I am busily tied up getting my little painting of a dahlia flower finished in time for my workshop next Monday. So happy to be working in such a gloriously rich pink. And it may just be another flower painting fit for framing. 

Working from a photo again.
No wilting and no changes in light make this a good option for beginners I have found.

Choosing the colours.
So far, Lemon Yellow, Indanthrene Blue, Permanent Rose,
Perylene Maroon and even the daring Opera Rose,
have found there way into the selection.

The little cards just peeking in on the left will be the colour charts for the students. 

Couldn't resist going for this one.

So much going for it as a subject for a workshop.
great colour, great shape, great tones.

Nature always wears the colors of the spirit.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson-

Also, I will be off on a wonderfully jolly day trip this week to see the much anticipated Florum exhibition in Kent. So, keep tuned, I will have loads to share with you all soon.

Really happy with this little painting.
And it should look quite nice in a substantial mount and a deep frame.

The scanner only picked up a few of the colours, so appears
a bit washed out.

Quite like the effect though.
