Essence of Sweet Peas
Where Painted: In studio from life
Medium: Watercolours on a ‘not’ surface paper.
Size: Supplied in a 14 in x 18 in mount
Inspiration: I had very little time to paint, and wanted to capture just the ‘essence’ of the sweet peas. I completed the painting in 1 hour, 5 minutes. Fading natural light suited the flowers better than artificial, and it was almost dark by the time the picture was finished.
