Summer ShowStoppers - a work in progress

In an earlier post, I mentioned how I like to try something new over the summer break.

This year I wanted to concentrate on my floral paintings.

Whilst I eagerly await the arrival of North Light's Big book of painting watercolor flowers from the US, I decided to pick up a book by Wendy Tait and practice one of the demos.

Here is the drawing of what will become some showstopping summer fuchsias.


  1. No book yet?? Are you eagerly watching the post man everyday?

  2. It arrived but 10 minutes ago! :)

  3. You've got a great line drawing going here! I see your book arrived...did you make a cuppa and settle down to browse your new treasure? :-)

  4. What are fushias? Like Hybiscus?

  5. Very different to hibiscus - the flowers hang down for one. You can get single and double varieties and a host of colours. If you google "fuchsia images" you'll see a raft of pictures :)
