Agapanthus



Agapanthus, pen and watercolour.



These are some more studies from my large studio sketch book. The purple one below was painted in 2008 - the first painting in the book. The white agapanthus was from last week - the only white one we had in the garden.

I am enjoying using more pen again these days, which worked well with the white flowers since this isn't a book for washed in backgrounds.

One of the reasons I love painting flowers is that I can work from life - unlike when painting birds. Another reason, of course, is that they are just beautiful.
