Foxglove washes on my easel from an hour painting in the garden this afternoon.
It is a glorious Summer day and as I am under orders to rest my foot I have sat quietly painting the first foxgloves that are coming into flower in my garden. The sun has shone on my shoulders and I have enjoyed looking at the tall foxglove plants in various stages of flowering. Some foxgloves are still in tight bud whilst others are already giving a fantastic display.
I did say while I was demonstrating at Patchings yesterday that I had a fantastically vibrant new colour that I have fallen in love with. It is in all of these paintings and I am hooked! But its' far too nice outside to be sat inside typing on my blog so I am going back out to enjoy painting in sunlight!
Have a fantastic day and I hope you too find new colours that you can't live without!
