If you are wondering what to paint, look down!

If you ever struggle with 'what shall I paint next?' then there is no better recommendation than to look around you. If you love painting flowers, look down!
Even the humble weeds can be inspiration for a painting.

Here is my version of a common weed in the UK,

The Happy Dandelion

Painted on Saunders Waterford, 140lb Rough paper, using W&N Artist Quality paint. 

8" x 11"


  1. Hi Pat,
    I hope your weather is better than the snowy cold we are having.
    Inspiration for me on my blog break is to clean out the unfinished paintings bin. lol

  2. that is really pretty. There are plenty of weeds that are just as pretty as any flower

  3. Hi, Pat, your say is absolutely spot on! What a lovely work it is!! Congrats! Best wishes, Sadami

  4. I like dandelions! Husband doesn't share this view. He has apoplexy if I blow the seeds off a dandelion head! Lol Lovely painting of a humble weed.

  5. This is lovely. Even I love painting florals. Gives you so much independence to play around.

  6. Oh Pat - gorgeous those weeds - you made them so beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

  7. I've never seen such a happy looking Dandelion Pat. It looks great!!
