The Alphabet Paintings: H

Morning everyone! Been a little busy round here, so I've fallen behind with reading blogs! Hope to catch up soon.
In the meantime, onwards with the alphabet paintings.
I'm finding a lot of inspiration in things around me.. this was a photo taken of my Hibiscus "Bluebird"  from my garden.

  1. I like this. That wet in wet underwash is superb. And how you have done negetive paintings after that to bring out the flower is so cool.

  12. Congratulations, Pat! Beautiful flowers and excellent play between the light and shadow.
    White colour is my watercolour "daemon". I love and admire works of other artists, but I don't have a courage to paint white flowers.
    Best wishes. :)

  18. Well done, Pat. I especially like the subtle shadows on the petals. White flowers are always a challenge in watercolor, but you have done a fantastic job.

  20. Thanks, Christiane, Ann and Penny.
    Have to say the flowers are not white, but a pale lavender blue - hence the name "Bluebird" :)
    Glad you like them, though :) xx

  22. Hi Pat, thanks for commenting on my blog. Love this idea of painting the alphabet. Hibiscus is a toughy to paint,you did well. But seriously.... what kind of doggy is that?? I read he was a rescue, awesome, but what breed or breeds? He is just so darn cute!

  23. Thanks Tonya, Cathy and Elsbeth. Glad you all like it :) xx

    Cathy - Missy is a jack russell terrier - of the parson variety.
    She is indeed a rescue - and came from Battersea, who's link is on the right. She even has her own slot on there under "Dogs - Happy Endings"
