These were hanging over my neighbour’s fence and I always like to paint rhodos as they are so beautiful. I tried to capture the flower’s delicate petals. I used magenta, hooker’s green and ultramarine blue to make the darks in the background. I also did a few leaves negatively in the bottom area.
I had a wonderful River Cruise along the Rhine River this year and rather than take alot of paints and paper I opted for my pen and small container with watercolours. I sat on a doorway one early Sunday morning doing this little Cafe that caught my eye. It was done in 10 minutes..as you can imagine it is an impression of what was there.
I do have my photos to work from now and perhaps will do a larger, more accurate picture later.
