I was on holiday in Devon and itching to paint, so I was most naughty and picked a large bunch from the garden of the cottage we were renting. I was aiming for fresh exuberance, because that's how I was feeling. So when I look at this painting it reminds me of the glorious sunshine and relaxation of a near perfect week in a beautiful thatched cottage.... bliss.
It is painted on heavy weight watercolour paper.
Artist quality pigments on Bockingford paper
