Cornflowers from my garden coming to life in watercolour
Every day I have watched a wonderful clump of cornflowers in my garden grow and shine in sunlight with their glorious almost violet colouring. I couldn't resist starting my painting day with a quick study of them. They are soft and delicate, so perfect as a subject to calmly move my way into painting subjects that are a little more lively.
I do find working from life rather than photographs improves my eye with colour matching. And painting something completely new each day keeps my enthusiasm very high!
