So difficult to capture the intense reds of the poinsettia with a limited palette of watercolours…
Perhaps that’s why we have so many words for red – crimson, scarlet, cerise, vermilion, maroon…
I am so impressed with your artwork Cilla, I could even come to like Poinsettia if they looked like your painting!
Thanks Anne! Surprisingly complex for just red leaves!,
This is wonderful. Mum would love it and would be so pleased with all the wonderful things you’ve made and created.
Yes Mum loved poinsettias didn’t she…
She did. Is this a continuous line drawing again?
Initial pencil drawing is pretty much continuous line, with lots of backtracking etc. Some bits it’s impossible to join on directly. Then I make it simpler when I go over it in ink.
