Botanical Painting

Botanical paintingI have not worked in watercolour for many years and found a lot of the paints dried out. But I couldn't resist responding to an ad in the newspaper for a weekend in Botanical Painting held quite close to where I live. The old Tuggeranong Homestead had a beautiful garden and I picked a couple of hellebore flowers and a spig of lavender to work with. Generally I was quite happy with my first effort painting such detail, especially as I have been doing so many big acrylic paintings.
