Pansies, Watercolour

I took my pot of pansies from the garden into the studio. This allowed me to work away with the advantages of the light not changing much throughout the day. I put them on my window sill which is just at nice level for me to paint while standing at my easel. I worked in watercolour and finished off with using neocolour water soluable wax pastels.

White Japanese Roses, Pastel

I am just in from the garden having done this painting for the blog. I had to wait until it cooled down as we are having a mini heat wave just now. The sunlight was shining on the roses and made them glow. When I brought the painting in I noticed the greenfly were on my painted flowers!
