I am fascinated by the structures and colours in plants. This study of a Canna Lily was a challenge because of all the stripes on the leaves. I bought the plant from a garden centre and painted it while the leaves were still fresh and the colours vivid. I also worked from photos I took of it to help with some of the close up detail.
